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...More

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.
