Cape Amenities

 
The Cape enjoys its’ own marina, pool, community beach, parks and green areas. 

Marina: The present moorage facility of the Cape, located in Fish Creek, began with a small wooden dock installed by the original property owners in the early 1960’s. Around this time, a deal was made with the owner of the row of dolphins located in Fish Creek to lease the area north of the present pier for twenty years in exchange for removal of the dolphins that had been used by local fisherman and fish-buying concerns. These fishermen and buyers continued to use the facilities until 1983. 

In 1991 the moorage facilities were expanded and the old wooden floats were replaced with concrete floats and finger piers. Water and power were added later. All aquatic lands occupied by the marina facilities are leased from the State of Washington Department of Natural Resources (DNR). 

The marina contains 43 individual moorage spaces ranging in size from 20 to 35 feet for a total of 1,300 lineal feet. Location of the marina within Fish Creek together with a wave damper provides adequate protection for year around moorage with the exception of a few slips. Short term moorage is available on a limited basis to Cape San Juan property owners or their guests.
Incidentally, an early occasional name for Fish Creek was "God's Pocket". 


Pool: The Cape swimming pool and facilities are located near the center of the neighborhood. The modern, in-ground heated pool is available to Cape residents and their guests approximately 100 days per year, from Memorial Day through Labor Day. Facilities include showers and dressing rooms. The pool contains about sixty-five thousand gallons of water that is filtered, treated chemically, tested, and periodically inspected to ensure the highest quality. In fact, the county health department proclaimed it one of the best they’ve seen! 

Community Beach: The beach is a composite of pebble and sand and is host to an assortment of marine animals, plants, and driftwood – a great place to stroll and daydream. 

Parks: The park areas are located in several intersections, near the marina, and even include a bench or two for weary walkers. An old style ship anchor, placed at the intersection of Cape and Island Drives, just inside the original Cape San Juan entrance, is a type used on sailing ships for hundreds of years. Its’ history is unknown, but some recall hearing that it was lost from a sailing ship during a storm. Some early residents of Cape San Juan found the anchor in Fish Creek. With much effort it was extracted from the mud and originally placed as a lawn ornament at one of the early homes. It is now the property of the Cape and resides in “Anchor Park”. Across from the anchor is a small park that is home to the Cape Message Board, where residents can stop and check out the latest information about meetings and events.
