Ever wonder what is stored in the eight silos behind Home Depot? Do you know what the two largest industrial buildings in Grays Harbor look like? Your opportunity to answer these questions is happening this summer with the Port of Grays Harbor public tours and Satsop Business Park walking tours. The summer tour program offers the public a first-hand look at the marine terminals and industrial properties that support thousands of jobs in Grays Harbor.
The popular hour and a half marine terminals tour will begin with a brief overview presentation of port history and current happenings, followed by a bus tour, courtesy of Channel Point Village, of the surrounding industrial properties and marine terminals in the Aberdeen and Hoquiam area. This tour will be offered on July 21 at 3:00 p.m. and 5:30 p.m., on August 4 at 3:00 p.m. and 5:30 p.m., and on August 18 at 3:00 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. Additional dates may open up later in the summer if needed.
The guided walking tours at Satsop Business Park offer an excellent way to explore the unique assets the Park has to offer including the cooling towers, tunnel training facility, warehouses, and office buildings. Walking tours will be offered on Tuesday, August 4 at 3:30 p.m., and again on Tuesday, August 11 at 5:30 p.m. Comfortable, closed-toed shoes are required for this tour.
Reservations are required for both tours, as space is limited. To reserve your spot, or for more information, call 360-533-9528.
