The 3-acre Waypoint Woods is located at the corner of Olympic and Harborview drives. The Bainbridge Island Parks Foundation (BIPF), in collaboration with the Seattle-based AHBL land use and design firm, is leading the planning process to improve the park for the community and visitors to the island.
“Neighbors know and love Waypoint Woods as a quiet place, just off from the busy ferry zone but a world apart,” said Barb Trafton, Parks Foundation projects manager. “This is a terrific opportunity to make this park setting more welcoming, while restoring its natural woodland character.”
Join the conversation and help bring a new gateway park to the Winslow Ferry terminal district. The event begins with a presentation at Bainbridge Island Rowing Center, 301 Shannon Drive in Waterfront Park with a walking tour of nearby Waypoint Woods to follow.
BIPF is seeking volunteers for the new Waypoint Woods Advisory Committee for planning and fundraising. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for information or Apply to join the Waypoint Woods Advisory Committee here.
The Waypoint Woods property is owned by Washington State Ferries. Bainbridge Island Metro Park & Recreation District has a use agreement to manage the property for public enjoyment. The Parks Foundation launched the project with support from the Bainbridge Community Foundation, with concept designs by Jones & Jones Architects and additional design work by AHBL.
