The city of Bainbridge Island has finished a $1.75 million upgrade to its Waterfront Park on Shannon Drive Southeast.

There is now more seating, open space for events and recreation, and pathways that comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act. New stormwater treatment infrastructure in the park will clean runoff from Winslow Way and nearby buildings.

Walker|Macy was the lead design firm and landscape architect. Browne Wheeler Engineers was civil engineer, and Patano Studio was the architect.

Waterfront Park is the only large green space in downtown Bainbridge. It is along a city-wide trail system and near the Washington State ferry terminal.

Over the years the park's infrastructure deteriorated, and the city said upgrades also were needed to serve the city's growing population.

“The improvements to Waterfront Park illustrate the city's interest in providing all members of the community with access to the waterfront,” said City Manager Doug Schulze.

Construction started last July and was substantially complete this March.
