Public waterfront abounds in Kitsap

I’m not sure how long Ezekiel Schmidt has lived in Kitsap County or what part of the county he is familiar with, but I’d like to inform all who feel the same way he does (“Public has a right to enjoy the area’s waterfront, too,” July 17) that we have many wonderful waterfront areas paid for by the taxpayers.

Start at Manchester State Park, the Port of Manchester waterfront, the Port of Waterman fishing dock, the Port Orchard Marina’s waterfront park, the Port of Bremerton Marina, Illahee State Park and Seabeck State Park.

There is also Old Mill Park and the four-mile walking trail along Clear Creak.

This is only a partial list as there are many areas in the north part of the county, including Point No Point.

All of these are free, free, free to all without going on private property.

I use Manchester State Park and some of the others often and find they’re not used much except on holidays.

Wake up to what there is and enjoy all the walks and views you want, but don’t suggest taking away private property rights. You might be next.
