About the Park: 

Known for the chorus of tree frogs in the area, the 112-acre Frog Holler Forest is the largest working forest on south Vashon Island in the Frog Holler neighborhood. Prior to public-ownership, the forest received certification for its sustainable management practices under the American Tree Farm System, while still allowing for community enjoyment of the 2.5 miles of trails within the forest. Frog Holler also has a 5-acre pasture once grazed by sheep, goats and horses.
