On July 17, Island Transit held a ribbon cutting ceremony for the Noble Creek Transit Park, located on Camano Avenue in Langley.

Sen. Mary Margaret Haugen attended the ribbon cutting, as well as Commissioner Helen Price Johnson and Councilman Doug Allderdice, both on the Island Transit Board of Directors.

Island Transit is committed to putting the “park” in park and ride, and the Noble Creek Transit Park reflects this with landscaping, rain gardens and a walking trail that winds its way through the area, according to a press release. Island Transit involved bicyclists in this project and ensured a bike shelter and pump was included in the final design.

Local artists competed to design the shelters, resulting in a truly community-inspired park.

“Our heartfelt thanks and gratitude goes to the community members who stepped forward and participated in developing the vision and design of this project, and who shared their knowledge of native plants, greenery and landscape design, thus contributing to this endeavor. Island Transit extends an especially warm thank you to Sen. Haugen, whose vision made this project possible,” said Meg Heppner of Island Transit in a press release.

Noble Creek Transit Park joins seven other Island Transit park and ride lots on Whidbey Island, plus one located on Camano Island.

Island Transit park and ride lots offer free, all-day parking in order to take the bus, van or carpool to a destination.

For more information, call 321-6688.
