Gig Harbor: Wilkinson Farm City Park

 Under a five minute drive from downtown Gig, between the residential areas and Hwy 16, located on the Cushman Bike Trail, is the Wilkinson Farm City Park.  Today, 17 acres, of the original purchase by this pioneer family, have been dedicated to open space by the city of Gig Harbor.  On the grounds, along the trails through the woods, you will find an original barn (erected 1914) and a few out buildings.

There are also beautiful green lawns surrounded by apple trees to have a picnic on.
What a beautiful place for an old dairy farm!

Historical signage

The best feature of the property was the community gardens on site!
Gig Harbor has many talented gardeners out there!

Love this sign!

What a great idea for plant markers in a maritime community garden!

Tomorrow, i'll show you a few more sites around town.
