Battle Point Park
Battle Point Park is located between Arrow Point Drive and Battle Point Drive with Frey Avenue being the northern boundary. The main, and east, entrance is on Arrow Point Drive with another entrance on Battle Point Drive.
The park totals 90.3 acres, is a former naval radio station, and is largely open space with two ponds, jogging trail, two soccer fields, three softball fields, horse area, a picnic shelter, two tennis courts, play areas, two basketball courts shared with a roller hockey court, a large children’s play structure, garden plots, disc golf course, and the Park District maintenance shop and offices. The recently renovated Transmitter Building is used for gymnastics classes and camps.
The covered picnic shelter is heavily used and reservations are recommended by calling the Park District customer service at 206-842-2302.
The basketball courts are available for casual play when not being used by roller hockey leagues.
A disc golf course map is available as well as score cards.
The Battle Point Astronomical Association (http://www.bpastro.org) has developed an astronomy center in the former “Helix House”.
The 1.6mi jogging path is used by bikers and walkers.
The children’s play structure was a community-wide effort spearheaded by the KidsUp! organization and opened in May 2001.
The pea patches contain 34 garden plots with a wait list. Please contact our office at 842-2306 for availability.
The old rubber and sand soccer fields were replaced with new drainage and two new durable FieldTurf fields for enhanced playability and safety. This community project was a cooperative effort between the Bainbridge Island Metro Park & Recreation District, the Bainbridge Island Youth Soccer Club, and private and public donors.
