The King County Department of Natural Resources and Parks is alerting boaters celebrating the July 4 holiday that the main pier at Dockton Marina is only open for mooring during the day.
The floating piers at Docton Marina, including the breakwater and finger piers, are closed to all use until further notice. This comes after significant deterioration occurred as a result of the region’s unusually harsh winter, with multiple freeze-thaw cycles affecting the structural integrity of all but the main dock.
There will be no overnight moorage at the marina this summer. There will be intermittent checks after hours on Thursday by Parks staff according to spokesman Logan Harris.
Infrastructure improvements at the marina could be made later this year pending on the outcome of the 2020-2025 King County Parks, Recreation, Trails and Open Space Levy, according to a press release. That will appear on the August 6 ballot.
The rest of Dockton Park, including the on-land restrooms, remains open.
