Senator Rosa Franklin Park borders Franklin Elementary school in Central Tacoma. The park features a playground, a baseball field, picnic areas, a sprayground, restrooms and several paved paths. 

The park is mostly comprised of open grass fields, but there is a band of forest that runs through the park as well. A series of paved paths wind through the fields on the south end of the park, including a short loop that winds past a patch of community gardens.
