Jetty Landing & Boat Launch
The Port of Everett is responsible for maintaining and operating the boat launch and park. The facility contains 13 boat launch ramps and three visitor docks. It provides paved parking for approximately 300 vehicles with boat trailers, along with a significant amount of unpaved overflow boat trailer parking during peak use periods.
A small waterfront park has been developed south of the boat launch area with a separate parking area for approximately 50 vehicles. The Port of Everett is leading an effort with the City and County to improve Jetty Landing by renovating the bathroom facility, replace/repair lane 13 and install an interpretive feature at the site.
Fisherman’s Tribute Plaza
After several years of collaboration, the Fisherman’s Tribute Committee, in partnership with the Port of Everett, installed a Fisherman’s Tribute Statue on the Everett waterfront on June 23, 2011. The Port’s contribution, in addition to staff support, was to construct a Fisherman’s Tribute Plaza to house the statue as part of its Marine Craftsman District.
The plaza is located adjacent to Waterfront Center along the north waterfront walkway. This plaza is a gathering place and resting spot for marina visitors, and includes a historical marker of the commercial fishing industry.
The statue was fabricated by Kevin Pettelle, an artist known for his work on Everett’s Mike Jordan statue and Seattle’s J.P. Patches statue.
The Port has identified the west end of the Central Marina District property for a public open space. The facility will be used to support and enhance the community’s waterfront access and marina customer experiences. Right now, it is a large grassy area with a historical interpretive marker that is open for picnics and watching the river boating traffic, but as the Central Marina builds out, the park will be enhanced.
