The entire world, and especially the tourism industry which is so important to Bainbridge Island’s economy, is struggling in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s hard to talk about things to do and places to go as if times were normal, and that includes making trips to Bainbridge Island parks and trails. Washington State is currently on a stay at home order until at least May 4, but an extension looks likely.
Though we are still required to stay home to keep our homes and communities safe, Governor Inslee did announce that Washington State Parks and public lands would reopen to the public starting May 5th. We’re grateful for the ability to get out to our Bainbridge Island parks and trails again, and we thought we’d take some time to share some of our favorites with you.
We also think that, in the face of the extensive social isolation we’ve all been facing in recent months, it’s important to look forward and plan in some special trips and “you” time. When it’s safe to do so, Bainbridge Island will still be here ready, and waiting to welcome you back as we have before. Many of our parks and trails, which really are one of the best parts of Bainbridge Island, can be enjoyed while keeping social distancing guidelines in mind, too.
