The Parks Foundation is pleased to announce its new Trails Fund – a dedicated fund for expanding the island’s growing trail network.
Bainbridge Island’s public trails network now offers some 39 miles of trails for hiking, biking and walking, and new trails are being added each year. As infill development continues across the island, the process of developing new trails, and connecting existing trails with one another, becomes more challenging and expensive.
The new Trails Fund addresses this challenge. It establishes a restricted account dedicated to trails development, specifically funding the “hidden” costs – legal fees, surveys, title searches, permits, staff time, and the purchase cost of trail easements – incurred in the lead-up to actual trail construction. Help expand our trail network by supporting the Trails Fund today.
