Kitsap Live Steamers 2022 Run Schedule

By Carole Moss, Kitsap Live Steamers and Macaroni KID Kitsap March 29, 2022
Kitsap Live Steamers, a popular attraction for families, reopens for the season on April 9, 2022. Located in South Kitsap Regional Park in Port Orchard, the Kitsap Live Steamers train track was expanded in 2020-2021. 

The 7.5" gauge scale trains run free rides (donations accepted) on the second and fourth Saturdays of each month through October, from 10am to 4pm. You will always find the dates in Macaroni KID Kitsap's event calendar and free weekly eNewsletter!

In 2017, Kitsap Live Steamers put the first ADA-accessible train  car into service. It includes a riding car designed to accommodate a  manual or motorized wheelchair. A ramp is used to negotiate the 4½”  elevation onto the 30” x 60” platform. Several tie downs are used to  secure the chair in place. A second straddle car is provided for family  and friends. This newer addition makes this fun recreation option  accessible to even more community members and visitors.

Kitsap Live Steamers offers donation-supported rides to the public and is in operation the  second and fourth Saturdays of each month, April through October from 10  AM to 4 PM (weather permitting). Plus, some special run days that are  not Saturdays, like Memorial Day and 4th of July. You will always find  the dates listed on Macaroni KID Kitsap, including holiday and special runs.
