About Owen Beach at Point Defiance Park

Owen Beach offers waterfront picnic shelters with grills, tables, a restroom and ample free parking. Owen beach was established in 1957 but has been used for recreation by local residents for much longer.

Views of Vashon Island, ferry boats and fishing craft make Owen Beach one of Point Defiance Park’s most popular destinations. Drive to the beach along Five Mile Drive or walk along the scenic waterfront promenade from the Boathouse Marina.

Owen Beach Improvements

New restrooms, improved parking, and a second picnic shelter are among proposed changes on the drawing board for Owen Beach in Point Defiance Park. No construction will occur at Owen Beach until Fall 2020.
