Howarth Park beach access
Few options for beach access “ridiculous”

To the Editor:
Once again, the only decent beachfront to the Puget Sound in the Everett Area is closed for “fill in the blank.”
I find it ridiculous that a city the size of Everett has so little public access to the water and the only decent location is constantly being closed for repairs and upgrades. The city websites keep pushing people to Mukilteo when it is not a beach. It is a very rocky grade into the ocean next to a parking lot and picnic area.
According to the Everett website, the beach upgrade was supposed to have occurred during the repairs to the bridge. At the very least, the city website could have informed the public that the one year closure was going to be two years instead of teasing us with a completion date in spring 2016 (which is still on their website).
