On the February 10, 2015 election ballot, Islanders will be asked to vote on a bond measure to purchase the 23-acre Sakai Property for use as a public park. To provide voters with an opportunity to see the Sakai Property in advance of this vote, the Bainbridge Island Metropolitan Park & Recreation District Board of Commissioners invites community members to attend a site tour of the property.

The tours will be held on three successive Saturdays, January 24, January 31, and February 7 from 10am to noon. For more information on the tours, please click here.
