Poulsbo Fish Park

This loop trail in Poulsbo includes a boardwalk that meanders through forest, wildlife-rich wetlands, and a few small ponds along the Liberty Bay Estuary and Dogfish Creek. It includes developed trails, benches/picnic tables, wildlife viewing platforms, and beautiful artwork and interpretive signs. Make sure to stop by the huge salmon sculpture constructed out of driftwood by local artist Travis Foreman.

In 2008 Great Peninsula Conservancy received a donation of 7.43 acres of tidal estuary and forested wetlands at the mouth of Dogfish Creek at the head of Liberty Bay from the Amory and Betty Cook Family. Great Peninsula Conservancy subsequently donated the land to the City of Poulsbo for addition to its adjoining Fish Park, with the stipulation that it be maintained for the purpose of nature conservation, passive recreation, environmental education, and wetland and wildlife enhancement.

This 7.43-acre property helped to expand the northern boundary of the Poulsbo Fish Park, and allowed for a new trail to be built that connected the park to Viking Way. The City of Poulsbo has continued to acquire land north and east of this property, and today the Poulsbo Fish Park has grown to 40 acres.
