After nine months, the construction at Skansie Brothers Park in Gig Harbor, WA is complete! The park, a favorite for locals and visitors, reopened with much fanfare at the beginning of June. New features of the Welcome Plaza include a bigger restroom facility with showers for visiting boaters, laundry facilities, and power and water at the city dock. There is also is a viewing deck with tables and chairs on top of the restrooms, a Fisherman’s Memorial statue and a splash fountain water feature that children, and for those young at heart, are sure to enjoy on hot summer days.
The park is also the location of the Gig Harbor Waterfront Farmers Market, a free summer concert series and movies, festivals and more! This park is so beloved that it made a spot on Evening Magazine! (It’s the first story segment after the introductions.)
