A little from the sellers about the location, and what they’ll miss about the neighborhood -

“We’ll miss the quiet, nice little house, and the nice neighborhood. We’ve enjoyed the yard because there are bluebells all around the house in the spring and lavender in the backyard.”

“This has been a great location to live in because it’s close to Wapato Park and the lake is not too far away, as well as the Tacoma Mall.”

“When dining out we enjoy the Tacoma Mall restaurants and the sushi place down the road near the Safeway.”


Two 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.

Have a hankering for authentic sushi, salads, tempura, teriyaki and more? Then you’ll love being close to such delicious food at Gari of Sushi! Traditional rolls & sashimi, plus some unique rolls like the mermaid which is topped with seaweed salad. They also have a large vegetarian selection of rolls that are often hard to find. Everything arrives looking like a well crafted work of art.

Where else can you dine out? 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 and just went through a recent remodel! 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! If you’re craving a burger, shake and fries – you have two to choose from and they sit across the street from each other, Jubilee Burger and Burger Ranch. Both equally popular and delicious. Another popular eatery in this neighborhood is Uncle Thurms Soul Food, where “All Our Dishes are Delicious.” Choose from a simple, authentic menu of all your Southern favorites — and if you’re a late riser on the weekends they serve breakfast until 2 pm. And last, but certainly not least of delicious places in the Lincoln District is El Zocalo Tortas and Bakery. The smells that waft out of here are incredible and will lure you in!

Commuting north or south? Getting on the highway is a breeze when it’s just minutes away!
