Secret Garden... Come in the Springtime for a magical display of color & beauty. Peaceful meandering, picnic and relax. Follow trails to beach access as well. Who knew this was here? Hidden in an old Victorian neighborhood, sweet little place to enjoy.

Have a picnic, overlook the water, even get married! I know two people who did and they loved it. There is a gazebo in the center of the park, for this type of occasion. There's also a playground area for the kids. Very sweet place!

This is a very peaceful park with plenty to do for all ages. The views are amazing, in the summer the flowers are gorgeous, walking the beach is very soothing and relaxing. This is a must see for all ages...

Chetzemoka Park is right downtown and was dedicated in 1904 with a rhododendron walk and a rose arbor still standing since 1910. Of course, nothing was in bloom in November, but it was still lovely to walk through, seeing the winding creek, the plantings, bridges, bandstand and beach. Yes, it is beach front and a nice path down tothe beach.

A dog park in Port Townsend? Nobody seems to know of this hidden gem just kitty corner to this park. The park has swing sets for the kids, great water views and slopes down to a rocky beach too. Shady trees, flowers and bushes to enjoy as well.

A very beautiful park and well worth the trip to Port Townsend, just for this one event. My wife and I went there last June when we were attending my grandson's graduation from college. We traveled all around this area and found this particular park to be a great stop.

Chetzamoka Park is a mandatory visit for anyone coming to town. It rarely has a lot of people, the Rhody's are amazing, there are bench swings to sit and dream, accees to the beach that walks one way to Fort Worden (1/2 hour) or the other to Pt. Hudson, (10 minutes.) I am a local with a stressful job so... More

This park has everything. Beach. Rolling lawns for Frisbee or other things. Gazebo. Picnic tables. Views. Families with children will especially love it with playground and big tire swing. Lots of dogs visit.
