What to Expect: A Clos­er Look at the Skan­sie Park Project in Gig Harbor

February 27, 2017

The Skansie Brothers Park in downtown Gig Harbor is a favorite destination for visitors and locals alike. The perfect spot for a weekend picnic, Skansie Brothers Park is right on the waterfront, ensuring the view is always amazing! Conveniently, Downtown Gig Harbor is also a hub of activity, and features a long list of restaurants (Tides Tavern, 7 Seas Brewing, and Brix 25 are a few favorites), shops, and other amenities and attractions. While this park is already a treasured part of Gig Harbor, the city is making some incredible changes and additions to this local gem!

REALTOR® Chris Burk and REALTOR® Debbie Burk are excited to share some of the renovations that are happening. Here are 3 big additions the city will be making to the park:

  • New bathrooms. This includes two family restrooms with showers and two public restrooms.
  • New public plaza. Expect new seating, shaded areas, and an open space with the Gig Harbor Fishermen’s Memorial at the center.
  • New boating facilities. This includes an ADA accessible route from the park pavilion to Jerisich Dock.

The renovations are expected to be finished by Memorial Day of 2017. Click here to view the construction schedule, check out a current webcam feed of the progress, and read more specifics about the upgrades.
