Nice, easy and flat walk for the most part. I followed the road and had a good time. Beautiful view at Owen's Beach so don't miss that.

Nice and pretty easy. Great place for a god run too! Nice views of the lake and islands along with a pretty little 5 mile loop drive and you can stop & see the zoo!

Such a pretty area at sunset. Always a pleasure to walk down here. A lot of people usually walking and cycling and strollers and dogs, etc. fun though and relaxing.

Thought I would take the short 2 mile walk down 56th street to check out this trail that I have never heard of in my 7 years of living in Tacoma. Well...I quickly found out why. First , this trail is mainly for mountain bikes and if I were judging the trail just on that alone I would have to at least give it a 3 for having some pretty cool little trails. As a hiker, not so impressed. The trail is eroded from obvious bike use, which is fine because it's a bike trail too. There is glass every where. I believe Metro Parks maintains this trail, they need to do some work on it. Not fun trail to walk on, it starts off pretty then gets confusing at times due to no signage and multiple paths, some of which are just for cyclists. There is also some evidence of homeless camping situations going on. Also I spotted a tree house tucked away with obvious recent garbage hanging from a garbage bag. I most likely won't come back to this trail unless I plan to mountain bike. FYI today there was a seriously strong odor of weed killer or some other hefty chemicals on the trail which caused a 5 minute coughing episode. The air smelled like the weed killer aisle in Home Depot. Toxic! I would have to say I enjoyed the 2 miles walk in the totally exposed sunshine at 90 degrees today than the walk in the park.

Great place for family all ages. Nice trails , great for cycling and running. 5 mile loop has some nice pull off road areas with views of water and Narrows bridge. Owen beach is nice too and you can rent kayaks down there as well. Great for picnics and big family events. Beautiful rainforest scenery (everything is green and in some places on the trails the canopy is so thick you can't see the sky) very pretty. Point Defianc Zoo is located in the park. The Rose Garden is beautiful in the summer. Also last week in June is The Taste of Tacoma located in the park , good food and music and wine tasting. I live locally and I am at the park at least once or twice a week.
