The Bainbridge Island Metropolitan Park & Recreation District is looking for input from islanders as the district updates its comprehensive plan for island parks and recreation.

The plan outlines agency goals and is used to make program decisions and determine future capital projects. The plan is updated every six years based in part on insights from park and recreation users regarding preferences for parks, programs, and facilities.

Park officials will host two public meetings as well as an online forum to gather public comments.

The first meeting is 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, June 1 at the Bainbridge Island Aquatic Center.

The second meeting is 7 to 9 p.m. Tuesday, June 4, also at the Bainbridge Island Aquatic Center.

The online forum starts June 1 and will run through June 30 at

For questions regarding these meetings or the online forum, contact senior planner Perry Barrett at
