Battle Point Park Stadium Lighting Update, 11/20/21:  The Bainbridge Island Metro Park & Recreation District has not yet scheduled a second Board presentation on the Battle Point Park stadium lighting proposal by the Bainbridge Island Football Club (now called the Year-Round Fields Coalition for the purpose of their proposal). The Park District and Board are currently meeting with the Bainbridge Island School District to determine the viability of an alternate field location on School District property. The Park District will not schedule an second presentation by the Year-Round Fields Coalition until that process plays out. When that presentation is scheduled, the Battle Point Alliance and Battle Point Astronomical Association will also be invited to the meeting to make counter presentations. We’ll keep everyone on our email list updated as things change.

The mission of the Battle Point Alliance is to ensure that Battle Point Park and the residential Battle Point neighborhood co-exist in harmony. We support a healthy balance of park uses that benefit the Bainbridge Island community including daytime passive and active recreational uses, and educational and cultural uses including those conducted by the Battle Point Astronomical Association.



The Battle Point Alliance (BPA) consists of Bainbridge Island residents who support a healthy balance of uses at Battle Point Park. The Alliance is opposed to the Bainbridge Island Football Club’s April 2021 proposal to the Bainbridge Island Metro Park & Recreation District Board to install stadium lighting at Battle Point Park. Although we support daytime league sports, lighting for sports, and physical activity, we don’t support lighting at Battle Point Park because of the negative impacts to the neighborhood, to non-sports users of the park, and to the Battle Point Astronomical Association and Edwin E. Ritchie Observatory. The BPA believes night time lighting and sports are out of balance with the quiet rural residential neighborhood and passive recreational and educational uses of the Park
