One of Washington’s smallest parks at just 58 acres, Kitsap Memorial seems to be designed for hosting a variety of events in a picturesque setting along the Hood Canal. The state’s government website makes it well known that this is an excellent park for weddings, family reunions, weddings, group events, and oh, did we mention weddings? Yep, there are even wedding day-use facilities and vacation houses available for rent.
If you’re looking for a rustic experience in a state park, you’ll probably run into more people here than wildlife. But not everybody is looking for the same thing. Kitsap Memorial State Park really is a fantastic area to host an event with some amazing views. There are tide pools, hiking trails, and even a volleyball and soccer field. So if you do plan a visit, whether it’s for a big wedding bash or just a day out of the city, you’ll find something fun to do.

Kitsap County requested the inclusion of memorial in the park's name at the time of original land donation from the county. The name reflects the wishes and efforts of the original members of the Vinland Community Club, who sought to establish a North Kitsap Memorial Park in honor of Henry Brown. Mr. Brown was the person who first proposed dedicating the land for community use. He also established the first permanent buildings on the site.
