Poulsbo’s Fish Park Development

Poulsbo’s Fish Park is a nature park in an urban setting. This project began in 2002 with the purchase of 13 acres. The ongoing development has been successful using city dollars, state and federal grants, property donations, various service clubs, and extensive volunteer support. The Poulsbo Fish Park citizen steering committee continue to plan and fundraise for future park development. Opportunities on this 42.68-acre nature park includes public access trails and boardwalk, interpretive areas, and wildlife viewing along the estuary.

Centennial Park

Development of the west side of Dogfish Creek was partially completed in 2008, and included a parking lot, entry way improvements, a pedestrian walkway, plantings, interpretive signage, picnic tables under pergolas, and the addition of an entry way sculpture. In the fall of 2009, additional improvements were added thanks to the Poulsbo Rotary Club and Poulsbo Lions Club, who each built a pedestrian bridge that crosses the creek; the Rotary Club has also renovated the overlook near the creek. 2017 will see the removal of the house on the site, and early improvements including trails and creek restoration activities. Click below to view the site plan:

Urban Paths of Poulsbo

The creation of a city-wide trail plan for the City of Poulsbo was adopted in June 2012. This plan will also look at connecting to regional trail systems to the south and north of the city. Click here to review the 2012 plan.

North Kitsap Regional Event Center

The North Kitsap Regional Events Center master plan provides a long term vision that will improve the quality of life for people within the North Kitsap School District boundaries (including the communities of Poulsbo, Hansville, Keyport, Indiannola, Kingston and Port Gamble) and those living on Bainbridge Island. The Events Center will be an easily reached, identifiable community focal point where people gather to socialize, participate in cultural activities and recreate. It will also accommodate regional sports tournaments.
