Lake Tapps County Park | Pierce County, Washington
Client: Pierce County Parks Department
Huitt-Zollars prepared master plan refinement, plans, specifications, and permit applications for the expansion of Lake Tapps County Park. A special challenge addressed shoreline erosion that reduced the usable size of recreation areas, and threatened the longevity of existing dikes. The work plan included participation by County staff, federal, state and local agencies, and Puget Sound Energy. The project included shoreline modifications, a four-lane expansion of boat launch facilities, 50-space expansion of boat trailer parking facilities, circulation upgrades, dredge and fill to accommodate enlarged picnic areas, and a jet ski/boat beach.
