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, fitness course, two soccer fields, three softball fields, horse area, a picnic shelter, two tennis courts, sand volleyball court, play areas, two basketball courts shared with a roller hockey court, a large children's play structure, garden plots, and the Park District maintenance shop and offices. The recently renovated Transmitter Building is used for gymnastics classes and camps.
This park serves area-wide soccer and softball needs and hosts an annual area-wide equestrian event.
The covered picnic shelter is heavily used and reservations are recommended by calling the Park District Office at 842-2306. See the Facility Fee Schedule for rates.
The basketball courts are available for casual play when not being used by roller hockey leagues.
The Battle Point Astronomical Association (http://www.bpastro.org) has developed an astronomy center in the former "Helix House".
The asphalt jogging path is used by bikes, skaters and walkers.
The children's play structure was a community-wide effort spearheaded by the KidsUp! organization and opened in May 2001.
There has been extensive tree planting and a rose garden has been planted at the entrance to the park.
The pea patches contain 28 garden plots with new gardeners taking over as former gardeners leave.
For more information call the District Office at 842-2306.
Our old rubber and sand soccer fields have been replaced with new drainage and two new durable FieldTurf fields for enhanced playability and safety. This community project has been a cooperative effort between the Bainbridge Island Metro Park & Recreation District, the Bainbridge Island Youth Soccer Club, and private and public donors.
