The steps to the porch are all that remain of the Moritani family home at the Moritani Preserve in Winslow.

Late last year, the Moritani Preserve became Bainbridge’s newest park following the purchase and preservation of the land by the Fletcher Bay Foundation. The preserve is approximately 8.5 acres of fields and woods that was once home to the Moritani family and their strawberry farm (before World War II and the forced removal of the family and other islanders during the internment of Japanese Americans).

The Bainbridge Island Parks Foundation will host a community picnic at the Moritani Preserve from noon to 2 p.m. Sunday, July 8. Visitors are invited to bring a basket lunch and enjoy music by Gypsy jazz band Ranger and the “Re-Arrangers.” The parks foundation will provide strawberries, cake and information about the new park.
