Maxwelton Trails Park

48.0128427, -122.4121121
Access from Maxwelton Rd, behind South Whidbey Elementary South Campus

The South Whidbey Parks and Recreation District Board of Commissioners and Staff are pleased to announce the acquisition of 40 acres of forest land from the Waterman family. This property is behind the elementary school on Maxwelton Road and immediately next to the property owned by the South Whidbey School District with an existing trail system.

First and foremost, the District would like to thank the Community for their support with the Bond Issue approved last year. This support came at a time when this property was at risk of being lost to the public forever, and gave the Parks District sufficient funds to begin work with the property owners and access State grant programs. The District would like to thank the Waterman Family for their cooperation and patience in working with us to make this happen and to Shelly Ackerman and the group of Volunteers that raised money for the Appraisal and brought the property to the District’s attention. We would also like to acknowledge the Recreation and Conservation Office of the State of Washington for their assistance in our application for and processing of two grants, resulting in the provision of over $450,000 towards the purchase of this wonderful property. The District plans to pay off a significant portion of the bond once all acquisition costs are finalized.
