“Something for everyone!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

This park is where I love to walk and exercise --- a great loop around the entire park. It also connects into two other trails systems which take you further afield.

The park offers something for everyone. Soccer/lacrosse/softball/rollerhockey facitlities mean that games or practices are almost always going on. Picnic areas, benches for reading, a duck pond........Particularly lovely in the fall and summer.

It does tend to be windier here than on the rest of the island so bring layers!

“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012 via mobile

My husband and I came here for the first time and we were impressed. We aren't from around here so this park is pretty cool. It has a basketball court, soccer field. Which is big points for my husband and I. Very nice for kids and families. I'd recommend this park to anyone. It's great.

“Explore the nearby Fairy Dell Park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

If you park at the north end parking lot of Battle Point Park, near the duck pond, you can walk back out onto Frey Road, turn right, then left at the path marked with a "Beach Access" sign and into a magical place called "The Fairy Dell." A winding path (often muddy in spots--wear good shoes), winds through a densely wooded ravine with little bridges over a small stream. It's the closest thing to Middle Earth you've ever seen. At the north end of the trail you can turn left and go down some steps to the beach when the tide is out and get a fabulous view across the Sound of the Olympic Mountain Range rising above the Kitsap Peninsula.

Or you can turn right and climb up the trail to the corner of Venice Loop and Kirk Ave. Either walk around the L-shaped Venice Loop to Arrow Point Drive and back to the other opening of Venice Loop. It's an easy walk back to Battle Point Park from there.

The Fairy Dell currently lacks a sign, but it is a public park.
