The North Kitsap Regional Event Center is a planned 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.

A series of public meetings were held in 2005 to establish initial needs and priorities. The KPFD is now working closely with project partners; the Poulsbo City Council, NK School District and Kitsap County, on the first Phase of the Project. The PFD contributed $1.45 million dollars of the total $2.2 million required to complete Phase I.

The Phase I project has replaced the grass fields at the NK Stadium (Field #2 in the drawing below) and one of the soccer fields at Strawberry Field (#8 below) with artificial turf, and also install lights at Strawberry Field. This project began after Commencement was June 2008 and the stadium was completed by the first football game in September and Strawberry Field in November.

Phase 1: Four different partners cooperated in the $2.2 million project - the PFD, Kitsap county, City of Poulsbo and NK School District -  to provide artificial turf and resurfaced track for the Stadium, and artificial turf and lights at strawberry Field. The project was completed in November of 2008.

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.
