Park Grounds

Worthington Park is just as its name implies – a park – and we invite visitors to enjoy all that our grounds have to offer.

If you feel like a bit of a hike, consider walking the C.K. Birkenfeld trail which meanders along the banks of the Little Quilcene River. Signs along the way will help you identify local plants and find points of interest, such as the Hamilton Pond.

Feeling like a picnic? Enjoy the small but delightful picnic area close by the museum. You’ll find a peaceful spot to enjoy your outdoor meal whether you are travelling through on a tour of the Olympic Peninsula or are a resident of Quilcene and just want a change of scenery.

Let your dog run and play in the large meadow. Or bring your children to play games with plenty of space.

Should you be in a mood to just sit quietly and read or watch birds, there are benches beside Hamilton Pond that are perfect for either. This small pond hosts ducks and red winged blackbirds among the cattails and reeds.

There is the museum to tour during open hours of 1:00 to 5:00, Friday-Monday, mid-April to mid-September. The history and culture of the south Jefferson County communities are preserved and displayed within.

The restored Hamilton-Worthington mansion on the park grounds is available for rental. It is open for tours by request. Call 360-765-4848 to leave a message for your request for a tour or for more information. To inquire about renting the mansion, visit the Worthington Park website Worthington Park Quilcene | Quilcene, Washington

We hope to see you soon!
