About Julia's Gulch

This area is named to honor Julia Staney Hughes, a Puyallup-Klickitat tribal member who once lived on a float house below the gulch.

The Port of Tacoma purchased the 60-acre site in 2007. The site will remain green through a stewardship agreement with the City of Tacoma, Schnitzer Steel Industries, and Forterra.

Northeast Tacoma neighbors formed Friends of Julia’s Gulch, a group of volunteers dedicated to restoring the natural habitat on the site.

Metro Parks Tacoma manages this property, the Port of Tacoma owns it.
