The North Kitsap Regional Event Center is a proposed multi-use regional recreation and cultural center with ball fields, expanded swimming pool and community performance center. The Center, located near the NK High School complex,
will include improvements and renovation of existing facilities and fields.
Supplement to Phase 1:
Several small projects were
undertaken by the NKREC Steering
Committee with the remainder
funds from the main project: 1)
A surveillance camera system was
installed at Strawberry Field to
provide additional security for
the somewhat isolated field; 2)
a ramp and walkway was installed
to ease the handicap access from
the Middle school to the Field;
and most recently, a trail from
Mesford to the Hostmark parking
lot, along the East side of the
athletic fields and buildings,
was built with materials
purchased from these funds and
constructed by volunteers.

The PFD contributed
$1.45 million dollars of the
