One of the oldest parks in Tacoma, what was once Alling Fruit Farm is now a place for the community to play, shoot hoops and picnic.
This 5.6 acre neighborhood park was established in 1912.
2009 - Demolition of the existing shelter building, wading pool and one tennis court; installation of a new playground (purchased by the South End Neighborhood Council) and basketball court; re-grading the site to manage storm water run-off, improve open play areas and to accommodate new walking paths; development of bio-swales, in cooperation with the City Storm Water Management Division to control off-site run-off and flooding; private lighting for safety and security; reforestation of the entire site; and pathway upgrades for a walikng loop and exercise trail. Work completed by Susan Black & Assoc. and Buckley Nursery. Work was funded by the Parks Improvement Bond Measure, approved by the citizens of Tacoma in November of 2005. New playground equipment was re-installed in 2009 after a suspected arson fire.
