Homestream Park in Winthrop Washington is educational and fun. Years after emerging from its cobbled nest, a salmon returns to that same spot. Hundreds of river miles, thousands in the ocean, 9 dams, out and back, and all the perils in between. Paired now with another, preparing their own nest, a redd, to spawn the next generation. Back, in their home stream.
Homestream Park is dedicated to the rivers and fish of the Methow Valley. A place to pause, to reflect, to observe. And mostly to consider our role and responsibility in protecting the wild of these rivers forever.
Located on 2 acres of riverfront just downstream from the town of Winthrop, WA, the park will include an interpretive trail, sculptures, and a public gathering area with covered shelters, picnic tables, and a kid’s play fort. The land will be restored to its natural riparian and floodplain condition.
