Purdy Sandspit County Park

Gig Harbor, WA 98329

The Purdy Sand Spit is an unimproved waterfront public area that runs right along SR 302. It's 7.5 acre area includes a boat launch. A great place to see water fowl such as sea gulls and blue heron. An occasional seal can be spotted too.  

"The Spit" as it is called by locals, divides Burley Lagoon from Henderson Bay. It's a popular spot due to its easy beach access, just steps away from the parking spots along SR 302.  During warmer weather The Spit area can get quite busy with activity from beach-comber families, pets and their owners, swimmers, boat launchers and the occasional sail boarders.
