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 40-acre nature park includes public access trails and boardwalk, interpretive areas, and wildlife viewing along the estuary.

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.

It will also accommodate regional sports tournaments.
