Bainbridge Island Parks

Maintaining beautiful parks and green spaces is important to the citizens of Bainbridge Island.  Altogether, there are more than 25 local parks on the island, and many more open green spaces preserved for public enjoyment. From beaches to inland forests, Bainbridge Island’s parks have preserved the island’s special character for generations to come.  One of the most beautiful parks on Bainbridge Island is Bloedel Reserve.  Bloedel features several distinct gardens, ranging from a bird marsh and a classic northwest moss garden to an impeccably manicured and award-winning Japanese garden.

Not too far away from Bloedel Reserve, you’ll find the popular Fay Bainbridge Park.  This popular beach is located on the northeastern side of the island and offers sweeping views of Puget Sound and the Cascade Mountains.  Another popular sandy beach on Bainbridge Island is Pritchard Park.  Located on Eagle Harbor, this popular beach is a wonderful place to enjoy a picnic while you watch the Washington State Ferries come and go.  It’s also the location of the Bainbridge Island Japanese American Exclusion Memorial.

Many of Bainbridge Island’s parks offer wonderful walking and hiking trails as well.  The most popular walking trails are found at Ford Ward Park on the south end of the island, the centrally located Grand Forest, and Gazzam Lake Preserve, also on the south end.  Each of these trails offers glimpses into undeveloped Bainbridge Island.  These swaths of undeveloped land serve as important habitat and provide a necessary sanctuary for wildlife.  They also offer an escape into nature for islanders and visitors.  Finally, we’d be remiss not to mention Bainbridge Island’s popular Battle Point Park.  This park has a playground that is great for kids, and also has many of the islands sports fields.  Beyond that, there is a wonderful gravel path around the edge of the park that is popular with walkers and runners, as well as a pond for quiet reflection.

Thank You For Visiting Destination Bainbridge

The coronavirus pandemic is affecting all overnight lodging on Bainbridge Island. We look forward to the day when we can welcome you to this beautiful destination with a handshake or a friendly Island hug!

The governor of Washington State has issued a Stay Home Stay Healthy order, discouraging residents from leaving their homes, except to conduct essential business, through May 4.

During this unsettling time, we understand some people need to travel to Bainbridge Island to take care of family members or to conduct essential business. The proclamation identifies lodging as an essential business and our larger Inns and Hotels on the Island are open for business. Vacation rentals are available on a case-by-case basis.

Lodging owners are working hard to ensure overnight guests are comfortable in a clean, healthy environment. In addition to enhanced cleaning and sanitizing, our hosts have enhanced staff training, implemented easier check-in procedures and room quarantines. Online ordering, take-out, and curbside delivery food service are available from many local restaurants and wineries. Grocery stores, gas stations, pharmacies, and some essential retailers are also open.

Most hosts have modified cancellation and refund policies. If you need to change your reservations please contact your host directly to reschedule your visit or to request a refund.

If you are planning to attend an event or visit a favorite Island attraction, most parks, wineries, and restaurants are temporarily closed, except for takeout. We invite you to visit BainbridgeCurrents to learn what events have been canceled or rescheduled, and the Bainbridge Island Downtown Association to learn what businesses are currently open in a more limited capacity. Also, travel to our Island may be difficult, with limited flights to the Seattle area and reduced ferry service to our Island.

Please visit our Find Lodging and Promotions pages for specific details about availability and links to the accommodations currently providing overnight service. We wish you continued good health and safety, and we look forward to once again welcoming you to Bainbridge Island in the near future.
