We had the opportunity to take a long walk at Battle Point Park on Bainbridge Island recently. The park is large, 90 acres with mainly open space with ponds, 1.5 mile paved walking trail, bike trail, well equipped children’s playground, soccer fields, softball fields, tennis courts, community garden, picnic and sitting areas, and of all things, a roller hockey court. We were able to watch them play and boy does that look like fun!! Continue reading A Walk At Battle Point Park On Bainbridge Island
The American Legion Park of Poulsbo Wa is located just off Front Street. It can also be accessed at the north end of the Boardwalk at the Liberty Bay Park on the waterfront.
This is a shot of the boardwalk connecting the two parks. It is a very safe boardwalk and perfectly maintained for accommodating baby strollers, toddlers, walkers of all ages, and even bicycles (except for the overcrowding factor).

The new Village Green Community Park in Kingston WA is truly a work in progress. It is a wonderful space to play with the children or dogs, or just to do a little sunbathing or walking and looking at what used to be an old Kingston farm.
The park is located on what was a reclaimed waste water treatment site and Navy housing site. Future plans include ball fields, walking paths, and a new community center housing a library, senior center, and meeting rooms.
This is the rare 100 year old Camperdown Scotch Elm Tree that was part of the old farm. Since the tree cannot self reproduce it needs to be protected. It was adopted by the Kingston Garden Club, and hopefully will have a new sign soon to help assure it continues to thrive.
Right next door to the new and developing park are the Kingston Tennis Courts. They are busy courts and in good weather almost always have a game being played on them at any time of day.
Right around the corner is the skateboard park, and that is definitely busy all the time.
Faye Bainbridge State Park has a variety of family fun things to do and see. From overnight camping, to BBQ, and a main shelter rental for large get togethers, beach exploring and activitities, and a play ground for the kids.
We spent a couple of hours there this weekend and the kids had a blast while we relaxed and took in the scenery.
One word of advice put on your sunscreen, we got sun burned in 2 1/2 hours.
