Bachmann Park

Bachmann is a small park in Manette on the east side of Bremerton. It's located on Point Herron along Port Orchard. The beach itself consists of well-sorted gravel and is fairly steep, pressed up high against a tidy concrete bulkhead. It had the look of a nourished gravel beach, although I suspect it is not. 


Sediment movement along here may be a little complicated. There's some fetch from the southwest. But the greatest fetch may be from around the corner to the north and I suspect this may drive some material towards this point from Enetai to the north. This is also a site that may be significantly influenced by boat wakes and this area may be discussed in some of the Rich Passage ferry studies.
