Comprehensive Plan Update — Public Meetings and Online Forum

The Bainbridge Island Metropolitan Park & Recreation District would like your help updating its comprehensive plan for island parks and recreation. The plan outlines agency goals and is used to make program decisions and determine future capital projects. We update the plan every six years based in part on insights from park and recreation users regarding preferences for parks, programs, and facilities. The online forum goes live for a month duration starting June 1 and includes a survey portion.

We invite you to attend one of two public meetings and/or participate in our online forum hosted by the Park District to gather public input:

First Meeting Option
Date: June 1, 2019 – Saturday
Time: 10:00 am – Noon
Location: Bainbridge Island Aquatic Center, 8521 Madison Avenue

Second Meeting Option

KidsUp! Playground Renovation

The main tower area restoration is now complete. The rest of the original structure will be maintained as much as possible while we move forward with the next phases of our KidsUp! Next Generation of Play re-imagination process.

The structure is being restored and re-imagined in a way that will honor the original playground, but bring new ideas and accessibility. If you are interested, please read the information on our KidsUp! Playground Renovation webpage or on the signage at the site about the overall project.

To donate: contact the Bainbridge Island Parks Foundation.
