This two-mile long scenic waterfront with panoramic views of Commencement Bay is a great place for walking, jogging, rollerblading and fishing.
Envision Our Waterfront
We’re working to create a vision for the future of Tacoma’s waterfront – what it looks like, what it offers, and how it can be improved. Whether you use Ruston Way regularly or think you might in the future, we need to hear your voice and ideas.
If you see a seal on the beach, give it room – at least 100 yards. It’s the law! Dogs should be leashed and kept away.
Harbor seals utilize shoreline locations as resting places for several hours every day to regulate body temperature, interact with other seals and sleep. Chasing, tormenting, molesting, capturing or feeding these animals is harassment and is prohibited.
If you see a marine mammal being harassed contact NOAA Fisheries Enforcement Hotline (1-800-853-1964).
If animal has been on the beach for 48 hours or is clearly in distress (injured) contact NW marine Mammal Stranding Network (1-800-853-1964).
