Silver Lake Park is one of Whatcom County’s oldest parks, acquired in 1966. Prior to public ownership, the property was used as a private fishing resort. Current renovations to Silver Lake Park are part of a multi-phase project that has included numerous improvements over the last several years, including road surfacing and minor infrastructure upgrades.

Project Scope

The new shower and restroom building contains six restroom stalls, four showers, and one family friendly shower and restroom unit. A new onsite septic system will also be installed to service the new facility.

Project Status

The shower and restroom building opened to the public on June 16th. This phase of the project is substantially complete.
