Ribbon-Cutting Celebrates New Picnic Shelter at Wildcat Lake ParkKitsap County will host a ribbon-cutting at the Wildcat Lake Park Picnic Shelter at
10 a.m. June 21 to celebrate the completion of the new structure. Kitsap County Commissioners Ed Wolfe and Rob Gelder, along with Lisa Ballou of the Kitsap Tri Babes, invite the community to join them in welcoming these newest improvements to the 11-acre Wildcat Lake Park, which is located at 9245 Holly Road NW in Central Kitsap.
This picnic shelter project was a collaborative effort with community partners including the Kitsap County Parks Department, the Tri Turtle Babes (a women's group that trains for triathlons), the U.S. Navy and the Northwest Laborers-Employers Training Trust team. The new covered shelter is 36 feet x 30 feet in size and includes picnic tables, a large barbeque grill, and amazing views of Wildcat Lake.
The shelter will be available for public use seasonally as a location for neighborhood meetings, summer camps, birthday parties, family events and community gatherings. Residents will be able to reserve the space in advance through the Kitsap County Parks Department.
