Chetzemoka Park

Nearly two dozen parks dot the landscape of Port Townsend, but the showpiece is Chetzemoka Park, at Jackson and Blaine streets. Hundreds of volunteers helped create Chetzemoka Park, the first city park in Port Townsend, in June 1904. Named in honor of the Klallam chief Chetzemoka, friend of the pioneers, the 5.1-acre park overlooks Admiralty Inlet. The city-owned gem is on the water and has a stunning view of the Cascade Mountains and Whidbey Island on clear days. The park features flower gardens, picnic areas, play equipment and a bandstand, plus easy access to the beach and tidelands.

Built in 2006, the downtown Port Townsend Skate Park is at Monroe and Jefferson streets, just past the majority of the downtown area on Water Street. A fun local hangout for kids of all ages — and adults, too! — the park boasts a clover pool with pool coping; a large C-shaped pool; a street course with rails, manny pads, quarter pipes and a hip; and a mini beginner’s section. The park welcomes skateboarders, in-line skaters and BMX bikers only. Scooters are not permitted. The park is open from 8 a.m. to dusk daily. Please remember to be respectful of other skaters/bikers, and don’t forget your helmet and other safety gear!

It is now completed close to the Four Corners intersection with Highway 20 and is approximately 7.3 miles long. Here, you’ll find the Milo Curry trailhead. It is open for non-motorized modes of transportation and recreational purposes, including walking, bicycling and horseback riding. Access is from the Port Townsend Boat Haven off Haines Place. It is a segment of the Olympic Discovery Trail (p. 15). The trail is a great place to see breathtak-
