Free ice cream, live music, pirate fun, Kayak rentals – there’ll be something for everyone at the grand opening of the new Waterfront Park Dock on Saturday afternoon, June 2nd, from 3-5 pm.

In this podcast, BCB host Diane Walker talks with BI City project manager Mark Epstein about the problems with the old dock, the years of planning that went into the new dock, and what the new dock offers the community — including lights, water, more room for larger boats and much much more!

Plus — and it wouldn’t be Bainbridge if there weren’t a back story — he also tells us about the amazing community effort that went into rehabilitating the starfish inhabitants of the former dock!

To learn more about the new dock, its features, and the plans for the grand opening, visit the city’s website at And stop by the dock any time to check it out — it’s a fabulous place to hang out on these gorgeous spring days!
