The new park located near the Narrows bridge is called Tubby's after a black cocker spaniel that went down when the original bridge named the Galloping Gertie collapsed on Nove, 7, 1940. Tubby was the only one who passd on that frightful day.
The fully fenced 9 acre park is easily accessible by anyone and has two seperate areas, one for dogs under 25lbs and one for all dogs. Not only does it contain lots of acerage for running and chasing balls, it also contains foot trails that go up the hillside and into the surrounding trees.
There is currently only one bench to sit on and it's in the small dog area, so if you going to let your buddy run around for an extended time you might want to bring a folding chair. There is a porta-potty on site "which is clean and smells fresh"
The fencing surronding the property is new and secure so you don't need to worry about you pet breaking out.
We have been on both rainy and dry day's, while my dog Stryder had fun both times, I enjoyed the dry weather and subsequent cleanup much more!
The park is on the corner of of 14th Ave NW and 24th St NW, the old staging area for the New Tacoma Narrows bridge.
Future expansion will include picinic areas, restrooms, and hook up to the Cushman Trail.
For people living off Reed drive or 14th Ave, this is a closer walk than the Narrows bridge and your pets will love you for it!
