Project Highlight: Wright Spray Park and Playground – Tacoma, WA

June 14, 2016


Visit Wright Spray Park in downtown Tacoma to cool off this summer

Need to cool off as the summer heat rolls in? Head to Wright Spray Park! Located right in Tacoma’s downtown area, the park hosts many community events, including the summer playground and free lunch program, which serves about 4,000 children each summer.

In 2011 the Tacoma Metropolitan Park District received a $453,527 WWRP grant in the Local Parks category. The grant was used to replace a 50-year- old wading pool with a spray ground and install a new playground in the park, which also features an arboretum and walking trails.

The spray ground provides one of Tacoma’s most popular and unique water play areas. The new, large play structure features elements for both toddlers and older children, as well as a musical play structure. With picnic tables and benches all around the playground area, it’s the perfect destination for an outing with your family this summer!
