Battle Point Park Pond Project
The Battle Point Park pond drainage overflow has been compromised. It has self-sealed; however, we anticipate the possibility of future failures. The Park District is working with regulatory agencies to develop engineered plans for improvement. The timeline for implementation of these improvements is the end of summer 2021.
Battle Point Pond Repair Update — 6.18.21
The Park District is engaged with several state regulating agencies, engineers, surveyors, and potential contactors to remedy the problems with the outflow structure at the pond. The pond leakage has been stopped by sandbagging and we will do our best to maintain the pond water quality at the current water elevation. Repairs will begin when all the engineering, permitting, and contracting is complete tis summer.

KidsUp! Playground Update, Spring 2021
A lot has been happening at the KidsUp! Playground at Battle Point Park as we head into spring.
First, and perhaps most significantly, the KidsUp! Next Generation of Play Committee, in partnership with the Bainbridge Island Parks Foundation, has met their preliminary funding goals, allowing construction to enter its second phase in earnest.
And enter it has! Following the fall and winter installation of many of the first phase play fixtures and walkways, the long-anticipated 47-foot-long steel ferry boat arrived on February 8th. It was shipped from Landscape Structures Inc. in Minnesota on 11 separate triple-length pallets. Assembly will begin as soon as the site becomes dry enough for the foundation framework to be set. This will be a project to challenge the skills of our intrepid District structures team. Picture a 47-foot-long IKEA assembly in 22 Prius sized boxes and you will have an idea of the complexity involved. There may be opportunities for volunteer assistance in this endeavor, so stay tuned for further updates here!
