Get Directions

Located on the water's edge in Old Town, this park was renamed for a former Tacoma mayor and leader in developing the Ruston Way waterfront.

Congressman Norm Dicks speaks at the rededication ceremonyHISTORY
Jack Hyde Park was initially purchased by the City of Tacoma from the Tacoma Boatbuilding Company in 1972. The park expanded to five acres with additional land purchases in 1973 and 1976. Old Town dock, which is part of the overall park area, was originally acquired before World War I. Read more about the history of Jack Hyde Park on Commencement Bay.
