Across the street from this home is the entrance to what locals call the “Thousand Acres Recreational Park”, because there’s no official name for it and it’s not maintained by the city. Think of it as urban hiking - just lots of little and big trails that intertwine throughout a deep forest, nestled between communities of homes.
And if that isn’t enough fresh air for you, get out and enjoy the sun, sand and beach at Sunrise Beach Park! This beachfront park is a 82.0-acre scenic site with 2,135 linear feet of shoreline. There are 6 picnic tables, day-use areas, 2 miles of walking trails and forest paths with stunning views to enjoy Mount Rainier and the Puget Sound. This is a popular destination for scuba divers.
Crescent Creek Park, also known as City Park is nearby and offers a scenic creekfront spot with a view of Gig Harbor and the water. There’s a BMX park, art, a playground that includes an accessible fishing vessel to play on, ball fields, and more.
Downtown Gig Harbor is only 4 miles away and there are some local favorites like The Green Turtle and Tides Tavern that you don’t want to miss! Both have mouth watering menus of fresh seafood dishes. Another great dining option on the water is Netshed No. 9 where you won’t want to miss the house made cinnamon rolls! All have stunning views along the water and the Gig Harbor Lighthouse. Get your fresh fruits and veggies at the Gig Harbor Farmers Market - open on Saturdays. Listen to live music and pick up a bouquet of fresh flowers.
Need to get a little shopping done? You’ll find Target, Albertsons, Costco, Walgreens and more just miles away.
Just 15 minutes away is Uptown Gig Harbor - Here you can find an abundance of dining and shopping like, Moctezuma’s Mexican Restaurant (amazing happy hour and margaritas). It’s a great place to go for dinner before taking in a movie at the Galaxy Uptown Luxury Theater. There’s also Marshall’s, Talbots, Kohl’s, Michael’s, Ben & Jerry’s, Cutter’s Point Coffee, Panera, Safeway, Starbucks and Domo Sushi. For other grocery needs, Fred Meyer and Harbor Greens are on the other side of Olympic Drive NW.
