Parking changes to promote safety at Lewisville Regional Park
Jeremy Kanooth, Vancouver-Clark Parks and Recreation
Vancouver, WA – Vancouver-Clark Parks and Recreation recently hired McNealy Excavating, Inc. of Washougal to complete a safety improvement project on the access road from Lewisville Highway (SR 503) to Lewisville Regional Park.
The project includes paving and striping for parallel parking on the east shoulder of the park access road. Currently, cars parked diagonally often block all or part of the inbound traffic lane.
Construction will begin in late October or early November, depending on weather. The project should take about five days. During construction, no parking will be allowed on the access road. Parking will be available inside the park for the regular fee of $3 per day. After construction, parking along the access road will resume at no charge, but will be parallel only.
Regular park visitors can save money by purchasing an annual regional park/boat launch parking pass for $40. The pass is good for admission to any of the county’s regional parks and boat launches with parking fees, including Lewisville. The annual pass provides substantial savings if you visit the parks at least twice per month.
Passes are available at the Battle Ground Community Center, 912 E. Main St., Battle Ground; Firstenburg Community Center, 700 NE 136th Ave., Vancouver; or Marshall Community Center, 1009 E. McLoughlin Blvd., Vancouver.
