Jensen Point Park – a 4.0 acre shoreline activity park located on the east shore of Burton Peninsula off Harbor Drive.
The property provides one of two island boat launch and parking areas for motorized craft and a put-in access for hand carry kayaks and canoes. A small grassy area and picnic tables have been installed along the sand and cobblestone beach, which, due to the shallow water depth, is relatively warm for Puget Sound waters during the summer months.
The boathouse is home to Vashon Watersports, a kayak rental center, and to Vashon Island Rowing Club. It is also host to the Vashon Jr. Crew rowing program, operated in cooperation with the local rowing club and providing permanent instruction and operating space. Vashon Island Rowing Club is a year round adult rowing program, and Junior Crew is for boys and girls age 13 - 18. Juniors have a 12 week Fall season starting the last week of August and a 16 week Spring season starting the end of January in addition to summer camps.
Kayak and rowing classes are available for all ages. Vashon Watersports offers kayak and stand-up paddleboard rentals and instruction out of the boathouse as well as tours and group paddles. Call 206-463-9257 for more information or visit www.vashonwatersports.com.
