As an island, Bainbridge boasts 32 miles of coastline, which means you’re never very far from a beach. Several parks offer beach access, including Fay Bainbridge Park, Hidden Cove Park, Schel Chelb Park, Fort Ward Park, Roackaway Beach and Blakely Harbor Park.

Other areas feature walking or hiking trails that provide shore access – Fairy Dell Trail, Hawley Cove Trail, and Close Trail (within Gazzam Lake Nature Preserve) are popular options for beachside treks. Find a Beach



The KidsUp! Playground at Battle Point Park was built in 2001, funded by the donations of generous benefactors and community fundraising. The Bainbridge Island Park Foundation and its community supporters hand-built this amazing play structure, which features stylizations of local landmarks, wildlife, and opportunities for interactive play.



Kids Discovery Museum is an interactive place for young children which features a number of exhibits to spark a child’s imagination, while teaching them about the world around them.
