John & Doris Tursi Park
A Gathering space for families in anacortes, wa
John & Doris Tursi Park is located in a new Anacortes neighborhood and honors a couple who are longtime city residents and generous donors to the Anacortes Community Forest Lands and other city projects. It includes a cedar timber shelter that is constructed with salvaged logs from a nearby roadway clearing project. It has permeable concrete paths providing walkways and views of an enhanced wetland and native habitat area. This 1 acre park has a nice variety of amenities including a zip line, basketball court, picnic area, public art, open lawn and a circular pathway that mimics a bike circuit used by neighborhood, prior to the park being developed.
This project was designed by Barker Landscape Architects (now with Environmental Works).
