Kids Gig Playground – Gig Harbor, WA
Today we’re sharing another park review with you – this location is over in Gig Harbor and sure to be a hit with the kids with its castle-like play structure. And it’s not as busy as many parks as it’s a bit of a hidden gem tucked away. It’s called Kids Gig playground in Gig Harbor and it’s located behind Discovery Elementary in Gig Harbor. The shade from the large trees will make it an ideal place to head on these hot days in the summertime.

The Pacific Northwest is filled with many opportunities to get your kids out and active on a budget. At the top of that list are the many parks we have throughout the Northwest. These include National Parks, State Parks, Neighborhood Parks, Water Parks, Lakes, Skate Parks and more! Lets face it though, not all parks are created equal. Not every family is looking for the same thing in a park outing, and different parks appeal to different ages. Some are all day outings, and some are perfect for a short outing.

Highlights: (Favorite aspects of the park)
This is one unique playscape! Large wooden play structure with lots to do – slides, ropes, climbing wall, bridges, tire swing, monkey bars, and more!
Things To Know: (fees, parking availability, are there bathroom facilities, what to bring)
The park is free and open to the public when school is not in session. There are only porta-potties available, not flush toilets.
Recommended for ages:
The sign says it’s recommended for 5-12 year olds, but my 3 year old had a ton of fun!
It is located at 4905 Rosedale St NW in Gig Harbor, Washington. This park is behind Discovery Elementary. You can only go visit this park when school is not in session, but perfect for summertime. You will want to park towards the back of the school and follow the paved path up a slight hill to find the Kids Gig playground.
We love this hidden gem in Gig Harbor. Often not busy, there’s so much space that it would be fun even if totally overrun with kiddos. It’s a great playground for all types – we especially have fun climbing and playing hide-and-seek. The castle-like structure offers itself to lots of pretend play. And I really appreciate all the surrounding trees that offer shade, especially in the summertime.
