Description: The 34-acre property was acquired by PenMet Parks from Pierce County on February 1, 2011.
This "off the beaten path" location is one of the peninsula's best-kept secrets. Situated on the shores of the Tacoma Narrows and south of the bridge, the park features 1,200 feet of sandy-rock beach and was the best place to watch construction of the new Narrows Bridge.
A newly relocated entrance and large sign makes the park easier to find. A paved road takes visitors inside the park and its partially landscaped grounds. There, a paved path winds toward a gazebo and the sandy-rock beach. Two telescopes provide beach and bridge buffs alike an up-close view of the bridge.
The 2003-2004 renovations at Narrows Park were a year-long collaborative effort between WSDOT, Pierce County Parks and Recreation, and Tacoma Narrows Constructors.
