1201 S Puget Sound Ave, Tacoma, WA 98405
This is a easily accessible park with a large open field, well-maintained playground, seasonal water park, and a wooded area with a large variety of trees. It is next door to the Franklin Park Community Gardens where we learn about horticulture and community spaces that benefit the local area. Franklin Park is part of a natural wet-land preserve so you will see native plants flourishing in the ditches surrounding the field.
1811 S Shirley St, Tacoma, WA 98465
Wild with trails, this park has the most magical archways of any or our locations. One walk around the loop trail and you will walk through many natural tree arches and forts made of branches. This park starts with an open field and climb down the hill into the forested areas for shady exploration. It has a main walking loop and some bike loops on the perimeter. This park hosts lots of native plants and mosses to explore in the clearings underneath the trees. This park has water at it with two lakes in the summer and a third that fills in the winter time. Shallow to approach, these lakes are brimming with life: lots of waterlilies, bald eagles, and koi fish are among their residents.
Alder Way, Tacoma, WA 98407
Enter the leafy doorway into the picnic area with the giant fish and you have crossed over into a muddy wetland full of flowers and ferns. Trails and a creek that is for viewing pleasure only due to salmon restoration this park is perfect for tea parties and mud kitchens. Underbrush makes exploring feel like an adventure and accomplishment for the wanderer's heart.
