Jarstad Park lies on the eastern edge of the city's Water Utility forest lands and alongside Gorst Creek, site of a 2000 stream restoration. 10 minutes from downtown Bremerton, the park features trees, open grassy areas and views of Gorst Creek, which supports summer and fall runs of chinook, silver and chum salmon. The Department of Public Works and Utilities is pleased to make Jarstad Park available to the local community on a reservation basis May 1 through Labor Day.
Park reservations may be made in advance on a "first come, first served" basis beginning January 2 of each year. There will be a non-refundable fee of $100 for each day the park is reserved, which is payable within two weeks of placing reservation and prior to use of the park.
