The City of Gig Harbor used a grant to design and develop a waterfront park. Located midway between Gig Harbor’s downtown waterfront centers, the park includes a grassy open area, a ramp and steps to access the shoreline, kayak and canoe storage, and public art. The City built a shoreline boardwalk, restrooms, and a street-level overlook with seating and spectacular views of the harbor. Other park enhancements include a water fountain, benches, picnic tables, and lighting. The City of Gig Harbor contributed $1.1 million in cash and a grant from the Washington Wildlife and Recreation Program.
