Just a mile away and practically in your backyard is the Swan Creek Park & Trail. This 373 acre park is great for walking and mountain biking, a community garden, wooded canyon and upland forest. The river features salmon, the walking trail is 3.7 miles, dogs are allowed but must be leashed and this area is open year round.
The Lincoln District is just minutes away! The Lincoln International District is an incredible blend of historic buildings and cultural diversity and has a high Walkscore. Don’t let the current construction work keep you from visiting this neighborhood. When the work is completed in January 2018 this neighborhood will become even more pedestrian friendly. Find our more about the Lincoln District Streetscape Project here! Plenty of places to eat around here by local, family owned establishments and hard-to-find international items at several specialty markets. The Lincoln District also celebrates TET New Year Festival – check their Facebook page for more info on the date of this event, which generally occurs in February.
On the corner of S Yakima Ave and S 38th St is Vien Dong – an authentic Vietnamese, family owned restaurant that hits the spot with their delicious pho, curry and noodle dishes!
8 minutes away is Downtown Tacoma There are dozens of restaurants within a little more than a mile down Pacific Avenue. The University of Washington Tacoma is also down the street, along with LeMay - America’s Car Museum, Tacoma Art Museum, The Museum of Glass as well as the Washington State History Museum.
The best part of all is you can use public transportation to get around to all the wonderful places downtown! The Tacoma Link light rail is currently a 1.6-mile light rail line starting at the Tacoma Dome Station and ending at the Theater District on South 9th Street - and is free to ride! The city is currently working on an expansion plan with construction finalizing in 2022. This project will more than double the current length and will reach new destinations like the Old City Hall, the Stadium District, Wright Park and the Hilltop communities.
