Beautiful, historic park

Love this park, always something going on here! We really enjoy the Tuesday night summer concert series. It is well maintained, love the Skansie net shed in the park, very historic. Bring a picnic and enjoy the views!

Fun time at the farmer’s market except...
Jul 2020 • Couples
Lovely spot for a farmer’s market but beware of the hand sanitizer they squirt as you enter. It turned out to be heavily perfumed and stunk even after I showered and washed repeatedly. I ended up scrubbing my hands with rubbing alcohol to get the smell off.

In the middle of downtown Gig Harbor, a great gathering place for Thursday markets or kayaking classes or fishing lessons plus a pleasant place to walk around.

park reminded me of the tv show 'murder she wrote'
Sep 2019
Or for that matter those tv series taking place on some eastern seaboard town with fishing trawlers. its definitely the complete opposite of pike's place market in seattle. Offers nice view of the sound and had a public restroom on the premises came in handy after sucking down too many sodas at the tavern.
There was a nice raised platform here that one could access i'm sure many a postcard worthy shot was taken here.

Right in the middle of Gig Harbor, this wonderful waterfront park is host to local events. There are public restrooms and a viewing platform to see the harbor.Historical buildings and local businesses and eateries abound.

This is a great location to walk along the docks and take in the views. Very scenic harbor views. Restaurants, and boat rentals are near by. Highly recommend

Series of Small Great Parks
May 2019 • Solo
Skansie is one of a series of small parks and public docks that line Harborview Dr. and it occupies a roughly central position. It is emblematic of Gig Harbor's commitment to excellent public spaces. There are benches, pavilions, nice restrooms, attractive landscaping and wonderful views. A visit to this park should be part of a walk starting with the old ferry dock (with fantastic Ranier views on sunny days) to near Finholm's Market or Donkey Park (depending on how far you want to walk). New pocket parks are being added along this route and this investment is really paying off.

For whatever reason, Gig Harbor seems uniquely free of vandalism and homeless that plague much of the Puget Sound area around Seattle, Tacoma, Bremerton and Port Orchard. It makes for a very comfortable family atmosphere.

Where it’s happening in the Harbor from a sailors perspective
Sep 2018 • Couples
It has a small public dock that is first come, first served. Because of that, we’ve rarely ever been able to tie up there. We usually choose to make reservations somewhere first.
The park is walking distance from most of the marinas.
As others have mentioned, all local events happen here.

Skansie Park is right downtown in Gig Harbor and is really the focal point for fun. Every activity and event starts or ends here and the activities are great. Movies in the park, concerts...all right on the water and a beautiful stroll down the pier. Bring and chair and enjoy the best small town in America.
