Kid Friendly Park
Tacoma's Puget Park was recently renovated with a new playground. The 1.22-acre park also features paved trails.
Puget Park, located at the corner of Procter Street and North 31st, was one of the first parks donated to the city of Tacoma. On March 17, 1888 Allen C. Mason donated the first section of Puget Park "to the uses of the public forever." Additional land was later donated by Charles S. Reeves and others. The park included the small level area along Proctor as well as the gulch extending from Union Street down to the waterfront.
Hours: Dawn to dusk

"If you have not stopped by the renovated Puget Park recently, you should head on down. (Corner of Proctor and 31st, right before the stone bridge). We have always frequented this park, but I was not crazy about my toddler careening down the steep hill to get to the play area or the big water hole that lived under the tire swing. These things are now just vestiges of the past … the newly renovated park is beautifully graded with a nice sloping path kids can run down without any risk or parental heart failure. The swings are nice and the play structure is fantastic, complete with climbing ropes, conveniently situated hand holds, and a set of play binoculars for tree viewing and bird watching at the top. There’s a smaller slide for tiny tots and one perfect for 3-4 year olds. There is also a full complement of those wonderful new whirly-gig things for older kids and adults with strong stomachs. Since I run my errands on Proctor, this is always a convenient stop."
