Howarth Park ("how" pronounced like "now") is a beautiful beach that easily rivals the Edmonds Marina. A short woodsy walk leads to a Possession Sound beach, with Olympic and Cascade mountain views, lots of logs for seats and -- unless the tide is in --plenty of room for Frisbee tosses. The off-leash area is at the north end, to the right as you come down the steps from the railroad over-crossing. Poop bags and garbage cans provided. Restrooms and water elsewhere in park. Not wheelchair accessible. The start of the off-leash area is a bit rocky, but there was enough sand along the waterfront for a man and his dog to play fetch in the water.
