Landscaping is central to the San Juan Passage experience and in addition to each of its meticulously landscaped homes.
This beautiful waterfront community also features five substantial parks: two grand gathering greens, two neighborhood pocket parks, and a community pavilion and pickleball court.
The two grand gathering greens greet you as you enter San Juan Passage with spectacular views of the Guemes Channel and the San Juan Islands beyond framed by the community’s classic architecture. A path ox-bows through native plantings with tucked away comfortable seating offering quiet places to enjoy the view and then winds seaward to a dramatic promontory atop a sea bluff. At water’s edge, weathered stone seats set into the hillside create an amphitheater with a classical feel – a perfect spot to listen enjoy nature, pullout a favorite book or simply sit and reflect on the beautiful natural surroundings.
The path then slopes down to the Guemes Channel trail, which extends along the scenic San Juan Passage waterfront and eventually will connect San Juan Passage with downtown Anacortes to the east and 220-acre Washington Park to the west. Shoreside, a short stroll west takes you to the Ship Harbor Interpretive Preserve (SHIP), a three-acre protected wetland with board walk trails and observation platforms overlooking a beautiful salt water beach with connections to the Washington State Ferry Terminal and views of the San Juan Islands to the north and Mount Baker to the east.
The east park features a stone seated viewing area of the islands while the west park features a covered picnic area and children’s play area. The community pavilion, with its double‐sided fireplace offers a private gathering spot that celebrates the spirit of getting away from it all, while enjoying the company of good friends. A fire pit with views of the water and a pickleball court complement the experience.
