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.
Big Announcement! Our CUP (Conditional Use Permit) has been approved! We now have complete approval to develop the Horse Park in earnest. This is what we have been waiting for. There are a few conditions that we will have to meet, but after the Board did their due diligence, we felt the conditions were reasonable and accomplishable. There were no surprises.
David Goldsmith will be joining us at the meeting to answer questions regarding the CUP and what it means to JEA. He has vast experience working for and with the County, as well as most recently as interim Director of DCD while a permanent Director was found.
Please join us and meet our 2016 Board of Directors. Hear about our plans and focus for this year and beyond. We want your input, please come.
The Conditional Use Permit was required in order to rezone the property so we could use it for our purposes. Now we will move forward to develop the property. This means fundraising, gathering members, gaining support from the community and getting the word out! 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
