Portage Bay Park is the site of the former UW Police Station and Bryants Marina, on the shore of Portage Bay in the SE corner of the UW campus. The existing buildings will be demolished to make way for the shoreline park development. The park will include historical elements, water access for people and hand-carried boats, shoreline restoration, open lawn space for passive recreation, and opportunities for interpretation and education. The project also includes cleanup of site contamination, building demolition, potential partial re-use of building elements, shoreline enhancement and right-of-way improvements. SPR recently awarded the construction contract to Orion Marine. We anticipate the park will be completed in 2019. More information on the project can be found here.
