Surplus Parks: Navy Yard CitySeptember 9th, 2013 by tristan baurick
Today, we’ll look at a 24-acre Bremerton park the county refers to as the Navy Yard City property. The county hopes the City of Bremerton will assume ownership of it.
The wooded park can’t be accessed by road and isn’t on park maps nor is it marked with signs.
The property and surrounding areas have an unofficial network of trails that people in the neighborhood use and maintain. One access point is where a high-capacity power line meets Sand Dollar Road.
I met Chuck Peterson on the trail a few days ago. He walks the property with his dog every morning. He recently spotted a bear on the trail so he keeps pepper spray at the ready. He said the county has done little with the land since he moved to the neighborhood in the early 1970s.

Tomorrow we’ll take a look at the Colchester (aka Haida) property, a waterfront park in South Kitsap.
