The Old Fishing Hole is a haven for young (under age 14) anglers.  It is listed in the Washington State Department of Game’s Juvenile Fishing Guide.  Amenities include parking, public art, picnic areas, trails and benches, open grass area, and a seasonal portable restroom.  Adults can bait the hook and even cast the line, but then they must hand the pole over to the child to land The Big One.  The park's totem pole, "Cedar and Salmon", originally dedicated in 1992 during a potlatch celebration with the Muckleshoot and Duwamish tribes, was refurbished and restored in 2013.

Every Spring, the pond is stocked with close to 1,500 fish by the Rotary Club of Kent for the annual Youth Fishing Experience, sponsored by Kent Parks, Recreation & Community Services.  The limit is five fish per child per Washington State Fishing and Wildlife Regulations.  For more info click here
