Went last week for a concert by boat... free dockside parking, great concert, new public use building with washrooms and top deck viewing. The park is in the center of downtown Gig Harbor with great diversions, restaurants, sightseeing and dog-friendly. Great for all ages!!!

I'm not clear on what they're doing exactly. However, they have been working on it for quite some time and I suspect it will be more than Grand.
