KidsUp! Playground Renovation

The KidsUp! Playground needs your help. This much beloved play structure at Battle Point Park needs some major renovation work. We need parents and volunteers to join us in planning the future of this community landmark.

The KidsUp! Playground was created in 2001 with the vision, fundraising, and all-hands-on-deck efforts of a generation of Bainbridge Islanders. The playground is deteriorating and needs both foundational repair and an input of ideas and engagement from a new set of Islanders.

A renovation of the KidsUp! Playground will honor the intents of the founders of KidsUp!: a playground that evokes a sense of the island, the Pacific Northwest and local stories.  A KidsUp! renewal aims to be as community-driven as the effort that created this playground. Join this opportunity to endow a beloved playground with new life.
