New Boat Launch in Pasco

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash.--A new Boat Launch is dedicated at Wade Park.

The park is located right off Road 54.

Franklin County Commissioners, Pasco Mayor Joyce Olson, and public works department staff were on-hand.

The boat launch project went through a five-year permitting process.

Franklin County now has six boat launches.

"Franklin (County) has some, but this is one more additional one and the river is so important to the community, for the Tri-Cities, to have this nice facility here will just increase the access to the water," says Pat Roach, chairman of Franklin County Park Advisory Board.

Future plans for Wade Park include a restroom facility.
