Point Defiance Main Picnic Shelter

(253) 305-1090 / (253) 305-1084 •

Please be advised: Point Defiance Park’s Main picnic shelter will not be available for rental this year (2018).

Some big improvements are coming to Point Defiance Park, and we’ll need to close the park’s main picnic shelter to accommodate them.

Please check out the park’s other great shelters at Owen Beach, Gig Harbor Viewpoint or Fort Nisqually, or call (253) 305-1090 to talk with our rentals office. Thank you for your patience.

The closure will support work on a new aquarium, viewpoint upgrades, trail improvements and more throughout the park. It’s all part of Destination Point Defiance, a long-term comprehensive planning initiative to enhance the experience and honor the character of your park.
