What’s Nearby

For your major grocery needs, QFC, Safeway and Fred Meyer are all 3 miles or less away. If you are looking for other dining or shopping options, Downtown Tacoma is about a 20 minute drive.

Just a few minutes away is Lake Spanaway Golf Course borders the lake. From the red tees at just over 5,600 yards to the tips at 7014, it is a classic course that appeals to the novice player but also challenges the best players in the region. Lake Spanaway is a wonderful golf experience with its Old-growth Douglas firs, well-placed bunkers, and large greens. For winter play, Lake Spanaway has a reputation as one of the area's driest most playable public courses.

If you’re looking for adventures beyond your own backyard, Spanaway Lake is open year round and offers a good harvest opportunity for stocked rainbow trout. Spanaway Lake has some of the best fishing for rock bass in the area. The 135-acre park along beautiful Spanaway Lake is extremely popular with many year-round activities. Visitors to the park can explore a multitude of aquatic recreation opportunities, including two swimming beaches (no lifeguards), a boat launch, and a fishing pier. If you’d rather stay dry, there’s a new picnic area by the south swimming beach, ADA playground equipment with a seating plaza for parents and a new three mile trail system by Little Spanaway Lake.

On those rainy days, take it indoors to the Sprinker Recreation Center - for ice skating, hockey, tennis, racquetball, pickleball, ping pong, basketball, softball & baseball, and skateboarding - there’s something here for everyone!
