Grant County PUD


Grant County PUD has been working to enhance user experience at and public access to the Crescent Bar Recreation Area for nearly a decade. SCJ has provided engineering and landscape architecture services for the project both on and off the island.

At the Off-Island Recreation Area, SCJ assisted with the redevelopment of a 30+ acre site with pedestrian trails, picnic areas, beach access points, a two-lane boat launch, 50-slip marina, and parking areas for passengers and tow vehicles.

SCJ also worked on the 75-acre on-island portion. It includes a 55-site RV campground surrounded by multipurpose lawns, day-use and picnic areas, pedestrian trails that lead into an upland habitat restoration area, and easy access points to multiple beaches. A new day-use park features a playground, sports courts, and a multiple-family picnic plaza that connects to the beach.

A second two-lane boat launch and 70-vehicle/trailer parking area was also designed by SCJ.


“… I just wanted to let you know how pleased we have been with Dan (SCJ Wenatchee office manager) and the work that he and his team have been doing for Grant PUD.  They are very professional and quick to respond to any and all requests that we have had.”

“Crescent Bar is an exceptional area that has plenty to offer, and the additions that have been made will only complement the area.”
