Browns Point is situated on the eastern side of the entrance to Commencement Bay, which leads south from Puget Sound to the busy Port of Tacoma and has a little bit of fun history behind it. In 1887, two years before Washington became a state, a fixed white light lens lantern was placed on a white post on Point Brown. It was about twelve feet above sea level and 50 yards from the low water end of the shore. In 1901 the first lighthouse and a house for the lighthouse keeper were built, which today is known as the Browns Point Lighthouse Park - a popular outdoor spot for locals and provides the community waterfront access, enticing beachcombers year round and sunbathers and picnickers during the summer. A large green space makes this a nice spot for a picnic as you watch the deep-sea ships entering Tacoma’s busy portal.
This home sits near the North Shore Public Golf Course featuring a fun, yet challenging, well-manicured 18-hole public course. Players of every level can enjoy golf at North Shore. The Greens Restaurant, perfect for a pre-or post-round meal, features a delightful menu of American fare.
Enjoy the local community center just a couple of miles away! The Center at Norpoint is a multi-purpose community center located in Northeast Tacoma. The facility features both recreational and community spaces and caters to all ages and ability levels. They have a pool, climbing wall, fitness, wellness, and programs for all ages +, a skatepark, a splash pad, and a park!
