New Interactive Nature Park Opens at South Kitsap Regional Park
In years past, northwest kids learned about native plants, wildlife habitats, and developed outdoor adventure skills through scouting and summer camps. With the opening of a new, interactive Forest Explorer Trail adjacent to the playground in South Kitsap Regional Park, learning about the natural environment can be fun and interactive through simple trail challenges and nature education activities. An opening celebration is planned for 10 a.m. Saturday, September 8th with a ribbon-cutting, guided trail tours and miniature train rides with the Kitsap Live Steamers. Everyone is welcome!
South Kitsap Regional Park is located outside the Port Orchard city limits at the intersection of Jackson and Lund avenues. Access and parking to the nature trail is off the Jackson Avenue park entrance (3101 SE Marbeth Lane). Long-time Kitsap County residents may know the park by its previous name, Jackson Park.
The Forest Explorer Trail is a 1/3-mile, semi-loop that features a series of stations challenging the trail user to see more, do more, and learn more. Children of all ages will learn about the forest environment, perform simple activities for exercise and movement, and develop observation skills to explore the local "NeighborWoods."
