About Dune Peninsula

Thanks to approval of the 2014 Parks and Zoo Bond by Tacoma voters, the ASARCO Superfund site has been transformed into a major waterfront attraction.

Enjoy sweeping views on the 11-acre Dune Peninsula park, or walk, run and bicycle across the 605-foot-long, 50-foot-tall Wilson Way bridge which links Point Defiance Park to Ruston Way.

With space enough to accommodate public gatherings, Dune Peninsula at Point Defiance Park 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.

In 2018, the Park Board approved the name Dune Peninsula at Point Defiance Park for this highly anticipated space near the Tacoma Yacht Club. In addition, a winding, paved pedestrian loop on the peninsula has been named Frank Herbert Trail.
