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 upgrades 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. You’ll also enjoy the Wapato Hills Park - one quarter mile of sidewalk + longer trails can be found in the natural surrounding area.

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 - shop & have a little lunch at Nordstrom. This home is also close to Costco for all your bulk food and home shopping needs.

Also close by is Marlene’s Market, a wonderful natural food store with organic salad bar, daily scratch made soups and delicious bakery items you can’t pass up!

Moctezuma’s Mexican Restaurant has amazing happy hour and margaritas, but you can also stay in and order take out for Taco Tuesday at home while you catch up on all your shows. And don’t forget to order dessert too - they have a tasty Mexican brownie that comes with vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of kahlua cream sauce on top!
