July 18, 2014

Read about how Metro Parks Tacoma received $500,000 from the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) for the development of an 11-acre Peninsula at Point Defiance Park.

Excerpt: “With the money, the park district will be able to build a waterfront trail, parking areas, restrooms and other amenities, Hancock said. The trail would connect with the path that leads through the Point Ruston development on the former Asarco site and connects with the walkway along Ruston Way. The peninsula park trail also will connect with a trail leading into the main portion of Point Defiance Park.”
