Brief History

Located in northern Gig Harbor, near Olalla, and along Colvos Passage, Maplewood looks out onto views of Vashon Island, Mt. Rainer, Gig Harbor waterfront, and Point Defiance Park. It is a quiet community active community close to historic downtown Gig Harbor shopping and parks.

It is within minutes to Arcadia Montessori, Purdy Elementary, Harbor Ridge Middle School, and Peninsula High.



Community Vibe

While driving down the tall maple lined roads, you will also catch beautiful glimpses of Colvos Passage.  The neighbors are nice and friendly and seem to be active families. Because Maplewood is within minutes of historic downtown Gig Harbor, there are lots of parks and trails for you to enjoy. Have a picnic lunch by the creek at City Park while the kids play on the new playground. There is plenty of room to run around. You can also play baseball, basketball, tennis, or ride your bike on the bmx trails. Take a walk into town and rent a kayak and explore the harbor from the water. Another great place to go is Sunrise Beach Park. Take a walk along the shore line and see views of Mt. Rainer, Vashon Island, and the Puget Sound. It is also a great place to scuba dive.
