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.

New Mesford to Hostmark trail:

   Trail behind HS buildings                                         Ending in Hostmark parking lot

The Phase I project was replacing the grass fields at the NK Stadium and one of the soccer fields at Strawberry Field with artificial turf, and also install lights at Strawberry Field. This project began on the 2nd of June and continued through the summer of 2008, completing by Sept 6th at the Stadium and by November 6th at Strawberry Field. Some pictures of the project are below.

The PFD contributed $1.45 million dollars of the total $2.2 million required to complete Phase I.

Following are photos of the NKREC Phase I project.

The new field was "filled" with sand and rubber in time for the first game against Bainbridge on Sept 6th

Strawberry Field # 8: 

And now, as Field #8 is completed -
with lines for both soccer & lacrosse                       and the special hooded lights have been installed!


And now the community can resume play on an all-weather, lighted playfield that can stand up to the heavy use that current demand requires.
