Built by the City of Tacoma and maintained by the Foss Waterway Owners Association, this park has become one of the waterway's most popular areas for early-morning tai chi groups, joggers of all ages, commuter and recreational bike riders, and families looking for a little exercise.
Old-growth timbers from the former Municipal Dock Building near the north end of the waterway were re-purposed into the arbors and the open space design is intended for active use.
While large boulders provide great climbing opportunities for small children, they also provide a convenient place for sitting and enjoying the fresh air or reading your favorite novel or newspaper.
Restrooms are available on site and are open at varying times throughout the year.
The name of this park, located at the south end of the Thea Foss Waterway at 21st and Dock St., changed from 21st Street Park to George H. Weyerhaeuser, Jr. Park in 2015. An official dedication for the park was held on July 31, 2017.
