Cinderella Ball 2020- Cancelled

Unfortunately due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we along with Tacoma Yacht Club, have decided to cancel the Cinderella Ball this year. The Cinderella Ball is one of our favorite events each year, so this was not an easy decision to make. In the end, the safety of our participants and staff is our number one priority.

If you have already registered and payed for the program, a credit has been added to your account. We look forward to hosting the best Cinderella Ball ever in 2021.

Spring Quarter UPDATE (4/3/2020)

Due to the temporary closure of Metro Parks Tacoma facilities you will be withdrawn from all Spring 2020 activities you are registered for. Any payments for these activities will be credited to your account. For further current and future information regarding Metro Parks facilities and activities please go to​.

Stay safe, stay positive!

While Specialized Recreation activities are currently suspended, SHUTTLE continues to operate. Please see the notice from Pierce Transit below:

March 16, 2020

Pierce Transit SHUTTLE service will continue to operate during the same hours as our regular bus services. If there is a reduction in service hours on regular bus service, SHUTTLE will also be reduced.

Pierce Transit continues to emphasize that customers must not use SHUTTLE to travel if they are showing signs of the COVID-19 virus. This is for the safety of our employees and other passengers.  If an individual has symptoms of COVID-19, call the appropriate healthcare provider and make transportation arrangements that do not involve public transportation.

In addition, Pierce Transit’s SHUTTLE Eligibility department has suspended all in-person assessments as part of our application process. While staff are working hard to process all applications, due to this temporary change, you may experience a delay beyond the normal 21-day processing time.
