WWRP Applicant: Bainbridge Island MPRD WWRP Category: Water Access WWRP Grant: $6,929 Applicant Match: $11,158 Project Type: Development County: Kitsap  Legislative District: 23rd 

Blakely Harbor Park is a popular destination for boaters, kayakers, beach enthusiasts, walkers and about 3,000 students annually participating in Puget Sound's regional environmental learning seminars at IslandWood located adjacent to this park. This grant will provide two restrooms, storage, parking, historical and environmental interpretation, trails, and a bridge. This work will connect the two areas of the park. Currently, park visitors must leave the park and re-enter to experience both the uplands and saltwater areas. The site also will be tied to an adjoining cultural site now being purchased. Site development has received endorsement from IslandWood, a non-profit environmental learning center dedicated to elementary students, Washington Water Trails, and the Bainbridge Island Land Trust.
