Parks & Recreation > City Parks and Trails
Parks, recreational facilities and open space serve as vital parts of the community's character. Poulsbo has 14 city parks totaling 121.89 acres - about one-half of the acreage is developed while the rest is undeveloped or in open space designation. The city also has 3.75 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
City of Poulsbo to Accept Request for Proposals for Managment of the Little Valley Ballfield Property
The City of Poulsbo is accepting Request for Proposals (RFPs) from organizations for the management of the Little Valley Ballfield property, located at the corner of Little Valley and Bernt Roads in Poulsbo. The deadline for applications is January 31,jj 2015.
In August 2014, the City of Poulsbo assumed ownership of the Little Valley Ballfield from Kitsap County, which had been annexed into the city in 2007. The 1.82 acre site is currently home to a small baseball field, and is used sporadically by organizations. The city would like to see this property remain a public recreation amenity, but have an outside recreational or educational organization manage the site for community programs. This Request for Proposal asks organizations for a business plan to outline how the site will be managed, scheduled, maintained and developed. City staff, the Parks and Recreation Commission and City Council will review the proposals in February-March 2015.
Two mandatory Informational meetings will be held in the Poulsbo City Council Chambers – 200 NE Moe Street in Poulsbo. Organizations only need to attend one meeting.
Friday, November 14 10:00 am OR
Tuesday, November 18 6:30 pm
The Request for Proposal can be found by clicking here.
To request a paper copy of the RFP, or for more information please contact Mary McCluskey, Poulsbo Parks and Recreation, at 360-394-9772 or firstname.lastname@example.org
