Beautiful park along the harbor with a view of the marinas, water, boats, and beauty of Gig Harbor. Kayak & paddle board rentals are nearby and put-in here and everything is within walking distance (restaurants, coffee shops, reailers, distillery & brewery!)

We visited the farmers market and the Skanski Net sheds. Interesting history of the area and of the early people. They are certainly welcoming to tourists!

It's a beautiful place to walk, you are especially lucky if you happen upon a day when there is music in the park. It's a must on your stroll through Gig Harbor.

Easy to find and sit around watching people and boats. In the heart of Gig Harbor. On the very popular 3 mile Harborview Drive.
