With the help of Tacoma voters, the ASARCO Superfund site is being transformed into a major waterfront attraction. The $60 million project broke ground in 2015 and is projected to be finished in 2018.

On Feb. 12, 2018, the Park Board approved the name Dune Peninsula at Point Defiance Park for the highly anticipated space that’s still under construction around the Tacoma Yacht Club boat basin.

In addition, a winding, paved pedestrian loop also being built on the site has been named Frank Herbert Trail. Read the press release. Learn about the naming process.

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