Fort Ward is the site of a former military installation on Rich Passage on the south side of Bainbridge Island. It is now a combination of park on the water and a housing development on the top of the hill where the parade grounds were located. some of the old brick buildings are converted into other uses and officer's homes have been refurbished, sold and are now private homes.
The park itself offers boat launching access to the water for small boats, kayaks etc. This is a gentle walking area and spaces to picnic are all open to the public. Parking can be limited especially during warm weather.
This specific area can have some rough weather from southerly winds so watch the weather for your safety and don't forget your life preserver!
