The Port of Hoodsport’s Marina had floats replaced under the North end of the dock and slips this last winter. It was apparent that part of the dock was noticeably sagging, and upon closer inspection three support floats were no longer in place and had been carried away in a winter storm. In December of 2014 the Ports Waterfront Park hosted a Christmas tree structure that was erected over the Maple tree planter by the Port and decorated by the Kiwanis for the Christmas tree lighting event that was held on the first Sunday of December. Flower Baskets and flowers have been ordered for the Ports Waterfront Park, they will be planted and hung as soon as they arrive and weather permits.


The Public Restrooms continue to have high volume throughout the year.


The Hoodsport Trail Park has been open most of the winter due to mild weather and was closed only during stormy weather. The parking area at the Trail Park is being expanded to accommodate increased hiking activity. New Trail head signs are being constructed and will be installed by summer of 2015.


The Port of Hoodsport will be holding a public hearing to discuss future plans for the Hoodsport Trail Park .

The date and time of the Public meeting is expected to be announced sometime in May or June 2015 as soon as details are worked out.

The Port Commission will have a full presentation and will welcome discussion and input from the Public addressing thoughts, questions and concerns about the proposed plans.
