Chambers Bay Event

Cresent Creek event headquarters @ Cathie's
It was been fun Thursday mornings this month for the Plein air group from Cresent Creek Park to Port Orchard waterfront.

    This week we are doing dueling opportunities at Chambers Bay. Feather will be facilitating an a.m. event at the North Meadow while Anne is gathering artist for the afternoon at the Environmental services building.

The morning event start time is 9:30 at the North Meadow. Access Points: Parking lot entrance is off Grandview drive west between the round abouts of 48th st west and Cirque drive. It is an area which houses a playground on one side and an expansive look over the sound and golf course. The paved path along the outlook connects the grandview trail  to the soundview trail and has a bathroom where the lot meets the trail.

For those looking for adventure you can hike the grandview trail (Located along the top of a 200-foot bluff, Grandview Trail offers sweeping views of the Chambers Bay golf course, Puget Sound and the surrounding islands)  or wind down the soundview wooded trail that ends up down toward the water.

The afternoon event start time is noonish  where Anne will meet artists at the Environmental building. Access Points: Parking lot entrance is off Grandview drive west @ 64th st w roundabout. The walking paths provide citizens an opportunity to view a reclaimed gravel pit.
