Go Play Outside

The cherry blossom are in full bloom and it is not raining. That makes for a great first day of spring in the Pacific Northwest.  Since I love maps, I thought I’d share some of my favorite outdoor resources for the island.

The Bainbridge Island Parks District has a great map of all the island parks – see below. You can also click here for a larger version.

Another map I love is the Guide to Walking, Cycling and Paddling Trails.  It used to be in print, but now just available online.

A third resource is the website Bainbridge Island Trails.  You can sign up on the site for new trail updates.  A good, resource, with a lot of little known trail options.

Another I like, that is also hard to find is the map of the Waterfront Trail Loop in Winslow.

Have fun.  I’ll see on out there!

I was out looking at a house for a client, when I noticed the bright and shiny new play structure out at Eagledale Park. The guys with the Parks and Recreation Department said it should be open and ready for use this weekend (10/22/10). What a great addition to this quiet park.

Eagledale Park is also our off-leash dog park.  The 6.7 acre park is home to a covered picnic area, tennis/volleyball courts, basketball court and the Parks and Recreation Department’s Pottery Studio.

Strawberry Hill Park Bainbridge IslandI have spent a lot of time at this park – mainly because there’s always a lot going on here. The park includes three softball/football fields, concession and restrooms, Strawberry Hill Center, Mini-Gym, a picnic shelter, tennis court, sand volleyball court, a brand new volunteer-built playground, and a skatepark which opened in 2001.

This 25-acre park was a former Nike missle site.  The former barracks building is used as the Park District administrative offices. The former missile assembly building is used as an indoor mini-gym.

Point White Pier on Bainbridge IslandPoint White Pier was used as steamer dock site – the Mosquito Fleet – (1910-1930s, and 1950s-1972) and as a ferry dock (1942-1950) ; this .3-acre park is now an ideal spot for fishing, crabbing, and scuba diving.  There are scenic views (Port Orchard), and wildlife watching opportunities.  There is a 15 car parking lot at the pier.

Fay Bainbridge State Park on Bainbridge Island.

This is our one campground on Bainbridge and actually it is a great one.  Fay Bainbridge has a lot to offer.  Stunning views of Seattle and the Cascades, a play ground, amazing driftwood, covered eating areas, adirondack chairs – I love it.

Fay Bainbridge Park is a 17-acre marine camping park with 1,420 feet of saltwater shoreline on the northeast corner of Bainbridge Island.
