Port Gamble Ride Park-Kitsap Forest & Bay

Category Overview

Local Parks grants help protect these symbols of vibrant communities, providing places for families to gather and play and promoting a healthy and active lifestyle in an era when people spend increasing amounts of their time inside. The WWRP is the largest source of local parks funding in Washington, helping communities fund the acquisition, development, and renovation of vital recreation areas and green spaces.

Project Highlights

Kitsap County will use this grant to acquire 200 acres for the future development of a mountain bike ride park, including trails with riding loops and skill obstacle elements. The site is located in north Kitsap County and is adjacent to and has access to the Port Gamble Shoreline Park with 543 acres of uplands and tidelands. The site also links to the planned Sound to Olympics regional trail east of the Ride Park. The primary recreation opportunity provided by this project is mountain biking.
