BARC Stewardship Council

$4,220 of $4,000 goal

Raised by 44 people in 45 months
The Burton Adventure Recreation Center (BARC) is a unique park providing an indoor skatepark, a disc golf course, a BMX course and trails, and a sand volleyball court to the community of Vashon Island.  In 2012, committed volunteers of all ages formed the BARC Stewardship Council.  Working alongside the Vashon Park District, this group raised money and awareness in order to continue the programming and availability of what BARC has to offer.  One major project has been the installation of a bowl, just outside the indoor skatepark.  A $75,000 grant has already been secured for the construction of the bowl from King County.  We need one last push to cover $4000 in engineering and design fees not covered by the grant to break ground this fall.

Thanks again for your support. Skaters from all over the region have been enjoying the finished bowl. We are going to celebrate its completion on Sunday, January 25th at 1:00 and hope you can join us.

We would also love any help we can get tomorrow, January 11th, as we give the indoor park a good cleaning. BYO brooms, mops, and buckets. We'll get started at 10:30.

Good news! Last night the VPD Commissioners voted to accept the bid from Grindline Skateparks. Groundbreaking details should be coming soon!

It's been encouraging to see all of the support we've received this past week, both on this page and in the community. The bidding process closes on the 16th and the commissioners should be voting that day to move forward with construction. We'd love to have at least half the funds in hand for that meeting. Thanks!

Our son is long grown and is now a teacher but we all understand the importance for physical activity for children. There are limited opportunities for this type of recreation on our rock so every person should contribute to help our kids. Best of success.
