OLYMPIA – Nov. 22, 2022 – Washington State Parks will hold an in-person open house to update the public on the progress and status of ongoing master planning efforts at Westport Light State Park to consider a Scottish-style links golf course.

The presentation will provide a summary of findings of the environmental and economic site analysis conducted, introduce the golf course conceptual design and discuss next steps in the planning process.

The land purchase enabled Parks to connect the two existing parks.
