We spent the day in Port Townsend and then headed up to Fort Word for some time to explore and to catch dinner. A little off the beaten path and so worth the drive. Not crowded.

Following the south western shore of Bainbridge Island this park offers a nice walking/biking trail for young and old. There are plenty of picnic tables for dining alfresco. A public boat launch, a fair amount of parking, restroom facilities and a bit of WWII history...More

I like to think of this park as the neighborhood park. It does have its residences within and bordering this park. Lots of grassy areas for your pets to run and play. There are boat launches for those interested. And a great place to walk...More

Nice paved path with views of the Rich Passage. Great place for a picnic. TONS of blackberries to pick - bring a container!

This uncrowded park is a great place to walk. The forest is majestic, the water (and passing ferries) close by, and her is a great view of Rainier!
