Join us, Bainbridge Island Metropolitan Park & Recreation, and Representative Greg Nance from the 23 Legislative District for a tour of Sakai Park.

The Bainbridge Island Metro Park and Recreation District used a WWRP Local Parks grant to acquire about 16 acres of property on Madison Avenue near the Bainbridge Island High School. The property is named after the Sakai family who purchased the property in 1935 and operated it as a berry farm prior to and after their WWII internment in 1942. The property supports a mix of recreational uses including natural open space and active recreation. The area included in the open space portion of the park includes a pond and wetland matrix in close proximity to Ravine Creek. The other portion of the park includes active recreational opportunities such as courts, fields, and parking, plus trails linking to schools, an aquatic center, and the Sound to Olympic Trail.  The primary recreational opportunity that will be supported by this grant is active recreation.
