Battle Point Park KidsUp Playground

Category Overview

Local Parks grants help protect these symbols of vibrant communities, providing places for families to gather and play and promoting a healthy and active lifestyle in an era when people spend increasing amounts of their time inside. The WWRP is the largest source of local parks funding in Washington, helping communities fund the acquisition, development, and renovation of vital recreation areas and green spaces.

Project Highlights

The Bainbridge Island Metropolitan Park and Recreation District will use this grant to add a new KidsUp playground and restroom at Battle Point Park. The park district also will add benches, bike racks, drinking fountains, and landscaping. The 90-acre park is the largest developed regional park in the park district. The restroom is the park’s most heavily used and is next to the playground. The park district will contribute $505,500 in a voter-approved levy and donations of cash, labor, and materials.
