Help us finish the Point Defiance Park Master Plan

…and look for improvements throughout the Park in 2015-2016

For several years, Metro Parks Tacoma has been working with the public and community partners to craft a Master Plan to guide the park well into the future. This winter and spring, we’ll continue the process – and finish the work.

Even as the Master Plan process continues, you’ll see projects taking place throughout the park, thanks to the community’s support of the April 2014 capital improvement bond measure.
