Two in Tow & On the Go: Nature, but nearby, at Adam Tallman Nature Park

Apr 21, 2023 | By:

Today’s adventure explores Gig Harbor’s Adam Tallman Nature Park, a mostly paved half-mile path that weaves you through wild wetlands and boasts a surprise duck pond obscured from the street. 

Located at 6811 Wagner Way NW just west of Highway 16, this city park is of the non-playground variety and largely tucked away behind an office complex. In all, the wetlands and surrounding natural areas span 11.84 acres. Its flat walkability alongside branches covered in spongey moss, a majestic cedar straight out of “Avatar” and cute duckies to swoon over make it a great stop for kids.

For parents, a dedicated parking lot, wooden viewing platforms over the water perfect for snack breaks, and an overall calm atmosphere make the trail a hit as well. In fact, this pocket of open space is nearly perfect – if only it had restrooms. (That little building you see off the parking lot is a utility structure).
