Chambers Creek Park, Tacoma, WA
Lots to See at Chambers Creek Park!
The park actually surrounds the golf course. There is a smooth asphalt path that winds along a large field and up the sand hills. The trail makes a great place for exercise, whether you are walking or bike riding. There is a great view of the Puget Sound and of the golf course.
There is a bridge walkway that takes you over the railroad tracks and down to the beach. You are very likely to see a train or two go by! Families love to come to the park for walking, bicycling, kite flying, and walking dogs. These is an off-leash area for dogs.
