Anderson Point Park Is Now Open
Anderson Point Park is now open daily. The park, located at the end of Millihanna Road, Olalla, will be accessible from 6 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. daily through spring; hours will change in June to reflect daylight hours. The 66-acre park in South Kitsap has saltwater beach access and viewpoints of Colvos Passage and Vashon Island. The park was closed in 2010 due to landslides that caused severe damage.

Improvements to Millihanna Road will continue to be phased in throughout the year and is expected to require future temporary and short-term closures of Millihanna Road and the park, but the work will be scheduled to minimize these.

Parking is restricted to designated areas only. Vehicles blocking the entrance to the park or parked on road shoulders will be ticketed and towed at the owners’ expense.
Anderson Point Park Volunteers Needed
With the reopening of Anderson Point Park, the Kitsap County Parks Department is seeking volunteers to assist with the maintenance and upkeep of this beautiful park. Volunteer projects may include removal of invasive weeds and replanting with native vegetation, repair of the park kiosk, and general park clean-ups. The parks department will also appreciate park volunteers being extra eyes and ears on the park.

Kitsap County Parks is holding an informational meeting for all interested volunteers at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 26 at the Long Lake Community Center, 5100 Long Lake Road.

Kitsap County Parks Stewardship Program Wins State Award
Kitsap County Parks recently received the Environmental Stewardship Spotlight Award from the Washington Recreation & Park Association. The award recognizes the program which coordinates the valuable achievements volunteers contribute in Kitsap County Heritage Parks. Park Stewards accomplished many tasks including boardwalk construction, removing invasive species, maintaining trails, restoring wetlands, building kiosks and benches, painting, plant identification, lighthouse docents, and much more. Annually, over 20,000 individual volunteer hours are recorded in the parks program. 
  VOLUNTEERS -Thanks a Million!!!!
Kitsap County has issued the Annual Volunteer Report for 2014. During the year, the Parks Department enjoyed the services of 1,136 individual volunteers who contributed 37,156 hours supporting County Parks and the Fair & Rodeo. Large community and military groups of 150+ were not included in the totals. Using the Independent Sector’s estimated value of $26.72 per hour by a volunteer in the State of Washington, volunteers contributed over $1million of added value to the department and community!

During this time period, some of the parking lot may be available and access to the trails will not be precluded.
