Nestled into a residential area in South Tacoma, the handful of trails in this park offer a local place to walk in nature. These paths have been upgraded recently, their biggest features being two boardwalks that go across a wetland in the middle of the park.

There are several places to access these trails, but the main entrance, complete with restrooms, is on the corner of S 64th St. and S. Wapato St. Much of the park borders private property, so be sure to stay within the park boundary.
