A Horse Park for Everyone ~ Horse not required to enjoy
It is exciting to develop a place where
riders of all disciplines from throughout our area can get
information and read features on that important part of our
lives - horses! Major news is that development of the Horse
Park continues and you can be part of this exciting project!
Conveniently located, 1172 Cape George Road in Port Townsend, the heart of Jefferson County on the Olympic Peninsula, the Horse Park enables access to equestrian sports for children and adults who wouldn't otherwise be able to ride. It will also be a public park that is also open to bicyclists, dog-walkers, & hikers.
SPECIAL EVENT AT THE HORSE PARK
The ReCyclery Middle School Mountain Bike Team will have
practice races at the Horse Park on December 7th & 14th 12-2:30pm. The 1.12 mile loop will be closed to other trail users during the race - but is well-marked and will have marshalls at key intersections. The rest of the park is open and available, and anyone is welcome to come watch!
In preparation for this, many kids, parents and coaches pulled and cut Scotch Broom off several trails and helped open them up - Thank you!! We hope everyone has a blast!

The Latest: Our CUP (Conditional Use Permit) is still being reviewed. Notice was placed on the property and in the newspaper as well as letters sent to property owners nearby for comments. The comment timeframe has passed and we are very impatiently waiting, and waiting, for the county to complete the review and grant us our CUP!
This is the most important permit for the use of the property. Once we have that in hand we will be planning the next step which will be the actual development of the property. Yes, more permits and more money will be needed, but we will be on the property! We are continuing to do our best to push along the process, but it will require money to pay the permitting fees and associated costs in developing the property. Please join or renew your membership, every single penny counts, every single membership helps!

Who will Benefit?
Equestrian and non-equestrian people alike will all benefit if the vision for the Horse Park is realized. The local community and beyond will enjoy a conveniently located, high quality, multi-use equestrian facility for recreation, training and competition. Charity groups will benefit from a choice location for their events and programs, and residents of Jefferson County and the Olympic Peninsula will take pleasure in the magnificent beauty of the land and in the knowledge that it is well cared for and preserved for equestrian use.
Dedicated to building a world-class horse park on
the Olympic Peninsula - a legacy for generations to come
