Kiwanis plan to upgrade Anna Smith Park

It was 21 years ago that David Grellier and other Central Kitsap Kiwanis members helped in the original planning of Anna Smith Park — now they are planning a little sprucing up.

Originally named the J.A. and Anna F. Smith Childrens Park, it is now simply known as the Anna Smith Park and is in need of an upgrade. The park, located on Tracyton Boulevard at the intersection of Fairgrounds Road, features a pond, a Master Gardner’s demonstration garden, a wide grassy area, picnic tables and a 200-foot stretch of beach.

“The Kiwanis of Central Kitsap Club has been involved in the Anna Smith Park since 1985,” Grellier said. “It was bequeath to the county on the understanding that it would be a children’s park.”

Shortly thereafter the Kiwanis became involved in the transformation of the property.

“We worked on the park for three years and when it was completed we handed it back to the county,” Grellier said.
