The Neigh­bor­hood

Get out and about and walk or bike to Wap­a­to Hills Park where you can splash, play or cool off at the free spray­ground! Or take a leisure­ly one-quar­ter mile walk around this park.

2 miles away, you’ll find Wap­a­to Park — an urban park fea­tur­ing a wood­land area, a lake, walk­ing trail, plus a his­toric per­go­la full of stun­ning and col­or­ful. Wap­a­to has a num­ber of trails that you can walk to explore the park, includ­ing one cir­cling the lake that is approx .9 miles in length and you can’t beat the beau­ti­ful set­ting of the lake and for­est. It’s best and most pop­u­lar fea­ture though is the off leash dog park! The off leash dog area has a small­er area for pup­pers under 25 pounds, a space for larg­er pups and an upper dog area for all dogs. The park also pro­vides waste bag sta­tions and garbage bins to help keep the park clean. Water is also avail­able for the pups, there’s a water faucet and bowl.

If you real­ly need to beat the heat, you can look for­ward to being just a few min­utes from Stew­art Heights Pool — 160 foot Water Slide, Lazy Riv­er, Zero-depth entry, Bub­ble Pool, Water Play Struc­ture, Water Bas­ket­ball, Tum­ble Buck­ets. It’s a great, local com­mu­ni­ty place to just lounge about, sip some cool­ing, home­made lemon­ade, and dip your toes in their refresh­ing pool. And have you ever wit­nessed a fluffy, Cor­gi swim­ming? It’s quite com­i­cal! Not many know this, but at the end of every sum­mer, before they clean out the pools, they have a Pooch Pool Par­ty! It’s a fun place to take your fur­ry best friend to cool off and also enjoy watch­ing the oth­er pups get their swim on.

Just a mile away, you can find the Star Cen­ter — a fit­ness and recre­ation cen­ter. They offer a num­ber of per­son­al train­ing class­es like yoga, Zum­ba, pow­er mix, cycling, mixed fit, and kendo. They also have plen­ty of youth activ­i­ties, but the most pop­u­lar is their state-of-the-art Tree­tops Play­grounds that includes three spaces and over 5,000 sq. feet of play space for dif­fer­ent ages and inter­ests; pro­vid­ing year round fun! Some oth­er fea­tures are, a Play, Learn and Grow Preschool, birth­day par­ty expe­ri­ences, cook­ing & nutri­tion, senior pro­grams and facil­i­ty rentals. They also have a large out­door play­ground and sprayground.

Adja­cent to the Star Cen­ter is the South End Recre­ation Area. Fea­tures include light­ed soft­ball and soc­cer fields, a light­ed all-weath­er mul­ti-pur­pose field for foot­ball, soc­cer and lacrosse, and a hard sur­face area with park­ing and concessions.

The Taco­ma Mall is just 5 min­utes away. The Taco­ma Mall is the largest shop­ping cen­ter in Taco­ma and has over 150 stores and restau­rants. This home is also close to Cost­co for all your bulk food and home shop­ping needs.

All with­in a short 5 minute dri­ve, you can find a few great, local­ly owned spots for din­ing or hap­py hour. Pacif­ic South­ern, is a casu­al spot offer­ing hearty, home­style South­ern fare, plus cock­tails & craft beers on tap. Get cheap drinks done right at The Mule Tav­ern, right along the strip of South Taco­ma Way. They’ve got a patio out­side so you can sip that cool cock­tail in the warm sum­mer breeze. Edi­son City Ale­house is small neigh­bor­hood tap­room and bot­tleshop in the heart of the his­toric Edi­son dis­trict of South Taco­ma. They spe­cial­ize in a high­ly curat­ed, con­tin­u­ous­ly rotat­ing selec­tion of inde­pen­dent craft beer and cider on tap and in bot­tles. It’s also a short 13 minute walk along the Water Flume Trail, should you chose to take that route.

Stretch­ing between South Park and Oak Tree Park, South Tacoma’s Water Flume Line Trail offers the things that mul­ti use trail fans love. This 2.5 mile (one way) trail con­nects to oth­er trails and is great for walk­ers, jog­gers and cyclists! Some upgrad­ed were made to this trail in 2016 that includ­ed a shared-use path for bicy­cles and pedes­tri­ans, ADA com­pli­ant curb ramps, new storm drains, pedes­tri­an cross­ing mark­ing, a traf­fic sig­nal upgrade, and trail user ameni­ties pedes­tri­an lev­el light­ing, bench­es, signs, and bike racks.

Com­mut­ing north? Con­sid­er park­ing and rid­ing or walk­ing to the Sounder Train, less than 2 miles away to the com­muter rail sta­tion. It’s con­ve­nient, cheap (about $5 to ride) and less of a has­sle than sit­ting in I‑5 traf­fic for events or com­mut­ing! It will put you into down­town Taco­ma, Seat­tle and a few places in between. And if you need to dri­ve, free­way access to I‑5 is just a minute away.
