***A permanent swimming advisory is posted at this beach because of consistent moderately high bacteria levels.***

Windjammer Park Beach, or City Beach, is a 28.5-acre park located along the harbor in downtown Oak Harbor. There is no shortage of activities at this park! Swim in the lagoon, take a dip in one of the two wading pools, take a hike along the water, or enjoy your favorite outdoor sport or activity. Once you've worked up an appetite, enjoy a picnic along the water (barbecue pits provided). The park is also the site of an RV park. Many people choose this park for special events, such as weddings or family reunions. You can launch your boat from the park boat launch. There are restrooms here, one with showers.

SOURCE INFORMATION

The Washington Department of Ecology BEACH program tests water quality at salt water swimming beaches every week from Memorial Day to Labor Day for enterococcus bacteria. This is a fecal indicator bacterium that has been shown to have a high correlation with swimmer related illnesses. Three samples are collected at knee depth from across the beach to give an average and more accurately represent the risk of swimming at the beach.

The samples are then delivered to a state-accredited laboratory for analysis and results are available within 24-36 hours.

During the sampling period, Puget Soundkeeper regularly updates the Swim Guide to reflect the most current information.

Sample results are also shared on the Department of Ecology BEACH program website: https://fortress.wa.gov/ecy/coastalatlas/Tools/BeachClosure.aspx
