The city of Bainbridge Island said it plans to start construction by mid-year on improvements to Eagle Harbor Waterfront Park just south of the ferry dock near downtown.
It is seeking construction bids by Feb. 25, according to a notice in the Jan. 29 DJC.
A pre-bid meeting will be held at 10 a.m. Feb. 12 in council chambers at City Hall.
Kellie Stickney, a community engagement specialist with the city, said construction is estimated to cost $1.1 million to $1.25 million, and the city anticipates the park will be open in fall.
Walker Macy is the lead consultant and landscape architect.
The team also includes Patano Studio Architecture, architect; Browne Wheeler Engineers, civil engineer; PAE and Luma Lighting Design, lighting; Lund Opsahl, structural engineer; Herrera, environmental permitting; and JMB Consulting, cost estimator.
Walker Macy said the park's redesign preserves forest areas while providing new public gathering spaces.
The park will have a large terrace flanked by seat-walls that offer views, stormwater gardens and a meandering water course, and a multi-use lawn with a picnic/performance pavilion.
There will be a path to the water, improvements to stormwater management and more attractive sightlines.
Replacement of the city dock adjacent to the park is planned as part of a separate project.
