Parks and Recreation Director:
Five miles south of town is Shoemaker Bay Recreational Area. This is a Wrangell favorite and is heavily used year round. The park has a picnic shelter with a fireplace and picnic tables, tennis court, horseshoe pits, playground equipment, and public restroom facilities. Sports equipment used for horseshoes and croquet are available for use at no charge from the Parks and Recreation Department. The park area fronts not only the ocean but also Institute Creek and offers easy access to the tidelands and stream frontage. Shoemaker Bay Park is located next to Shoemaker Bay Harbor, a tent camping area, and near the Shoemaker Bay RV Park. Rainbow Falls Trail is located upland from this area, providing hiking and spectacular sight-seeing opportunities.
