Many of our members have internet accounts through Linknet at the Kitsap Regional Library.  The library web site contains links to a lot of local information.  Thanks to Linknet, we can maintain an email list to keep in touch with our members.

The Ritchie Observatory is in the large building on the south side of Battle Point Park.  The following is a clickable street map that should show you how to get to us. Note that Arrow Point Road goes directly to the main gate of the Park.  At the intersection of Arrow Point and Miller Roads there is a small brown sign that points to Battle Point Park.

When coming from the north on Hiway 305, turn right on Day Road, then bear left immediately onto Miller Road, then continue and look for Arrow Point Road.

When driving off the ferry in Winslow you will be on Hiway 305.  Turn left at the second light (High School Road) and go to the end of the road, turn right onto Miller Road, then continue and look for Arrow Point Road.
