Parking Changes for Point Defiance Park

The parking pattern will change several times until we open a brand-new 11-acre park on the peninsula at Point Defiance Park, an elevated walkway to link Ruston Way and Point Defiance Park, and new and improved vehicle/trailer parking. 

Until that time, parking will be limited.

Bear with us, and you’ll see a more exciting, more accessible, more enjoyable park.
