This is such a beautiful park with many off shooting trails and loops that you will miss the first time, which might explain some of the negative reviews. There are places to overlook Dogfish creek, natural ponds, creeks, walk boardwalks, find shade or sun and climb to the top of a mound for a good view around. Mostly level and easy to get around, but you can also climb a short hill trail to reach Viking Ave NW (no parking here). Due to the wetland and natural state of the park it has the largest amount of boardwalks I have seen in Kitsap that are well maintained. There may be storm damage from time to time due to trees falling across trails or streams overflowing, but most of the trails should be accessible year round. This isn't a garden park, it's a wetlands park with mud and moss to view, but don't have to step in. I wrote a blog showing the building of one of the boardwalks at http://kitsapcareshomescommunity.blogspot.com/2015/04/poulsbo-lions-club-build-boardwalk-at.html.

A small, but a great park. A series of trails that intertwine that includes multiple habitats. Great for a leisurely stroll and for bird viewing. There are multiple viewing platforms that overlook a tidal stream... perfect for viewing the salmon migration in the fall.

It's essentially a boardwalk thru some woods. Nothing too spectacular and no real landscapes to see. The boardwalk, however, is nicely maintained. It did well for walking my geriatric dog so it wasn't a total bust. :)

Well maintained beautiful park. It's not so much a loop, as a series of loops...
Great place for families and dogs. The only thing was, I could still hear the traffic noise, I guess because of it's location. I was just hoping for more quiet...

This is a nice leisurely stroll. We went as a family and enjoyed seeing the small wildlife and birds. The park is well maintained and right in the middle of town. But you feel just enough away from the city to enjoy the peace of nature. This is an easy hike. It's paved the whole way with virtually no elevation gain. It's cool to see wildlife and the salmon swimming grounds would be awesome to see during the breeding season. Unfortunately I was traveling at the wrong time.

This is a small park but it has a lot of charm. A great place to walk your dog, view owls, red-winged blackbirds, and watch sea birds in the tidal flats.
