11 acres of newly landscaped park property on the breakwater peninsula surrounding the Tacoma Yacht Club boat basin at Point Defiance Park.

Thanks to the approval the 2014 Parks and Zoo Bond by Tacoma voters, the ASARCO Superfund site has been transformed into a major waterfront attraction. The project broke ground in 2015.

Dune Peninsula at Point Defiance Park is big enough to accommodate public gatherings, it is 11 acres of newly landscaped park property on the breakwater peninsula surrounding the Tacoma Yacht Club boat basin. It is a unique location with an unparalleled perspective on both the bay and the sky above.

On Feb. 12, 2018, the Park Board approved the name Dune Peninsula at Point Defiance Park for the highly anticipated space near the Tacoma Yacht Club.

In addition, a winding, paved pedestrian loop also being built on the site has been named Frank Herbert Trail.

Artist Adam Kuby was commissioned to create Alluvion, a signature artwork for the new 11-acre park on the peninsula.
