Kiwanis Waterfront Park

Published May 10, 2004 / by Steve Berentson

I was just reading this morning about a University of Washington event that will focus on the question of whether technology and “multi-tasking” have stifled our inclination to focus and reflect. Well, thanks to the city and the community’s three Kiwanis clubs, you have yet another breathtaking Fidalgo Island “stage” to ponder life’s big questions. Take a visit to the new park adjacent to the Guemes Ferry terminal on 6th Street. You may not have the opportunity to “smell the roses,” but the sweet smells of the water and its environs are a joy as well.

About Steve Berentson
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
