The Parks Pass.

New in 2022! 
A Parks Pass is required to visit aLL town parks.

Washington Island offers beautiful parks featuring unique beaches, breath taking lookouts and scenic trails. The Parks Pass is a user fee to help offset the cost of maintaining the parks. The Parks Pass fees will help provide services such as trash removal, cleaning facilities and beaches, purchasing equipment and supporting preservation. NOTE: This is the first year of our Parks Pass program and just a starting point. We appreciate feedback and ideas! We'll be gathering feedback throughout our year and hope to make enhancements to the program in the future.
