About North Whidbey Pool Park and Recreation District
The North Whidbey Pool, Park, and Recreation District was formed by approval of the voters of the District in November 1977 for the purpose of financing the construction of recreational facilities on North Whidbey. The District is a separate municipal corporation, and is not in any way affiliated with the City of Oak Harbor or Island County Government. The District boundaries conform to those of Oak Harbor School District No. 201.
In November 1980 District voters approved a $1,700,000 bond issue for the purpose of constructing a community center that included a swimming pool. The John Vanderzicht Memorial Pool opened in January 1983. The District receives revenue from programs fees and from a levy on property taxes if approved by the voters of the District.
The District also owns and operates Clover Valley Park which is located off of Ault Field Road at the intersection of Oak Harbor St. Clover Valley has an off-leash dog park and two ball fields available for use.
