Good for Entiat

Entiat was sacrificed. Its town center was drowned in the 1960s as the waters rose behind Rocky Reach Dam. Ever since it has been a community with great vitality, but a community in search of a focal point, a heart.

The heart is beating. This month they broke ground on a $7.3 million rebuilding of Entiat’s riverfront park. It will have campsites, a boat launch, a riverfront trail and a lifesize statue of Chilcosahaskt, the last chief of the Entiat tribe. The new park will jump-start Entiat’s own dream project of building a new commercial district closer to the original townsite. The project is a promise kept by the Chelan County PUD and its ratepayers, who still benefit from Entiat’s inundation.
