City of Poulsbo, Washington

Parks & Recreation > City Parks and Trails
Parks, recreational facilities and open space serve as vital parts of the community's character. Poulsbo has 15 city parks totaling 143 acres - about one-half of the acreage is developed while the rest is undeveloped or in open space designation. The city also has 5 linear miles of trails. The city has been active in park development in recent years, making sure that partnerships are used to enhance park projects and activities. Volunteerism and stewardship of the natural and cultural resources within the city has helped shape many city park projects


The Boardwalk Re-Opens!

Poulsbo Public Works has completed repairs on the boardwalk between American Legion Park and the MIW Waterfront Park, and it is once again open to the public.Thank you for your patience and thank you to Public Works for a job well done.
