Hiking, biking, running or just looking at gorgeous flowers? I wish I did not have to fly across the country to get to this park. The roses were stunning, the native plant garden was interesting and peaceful I wish I had had time to rent a kayak.

It's a wonderful getaway in the city. You can walk, bike, swim, boat, fish, watch the animals at the zoo, the fish at the aquarium or the flowers in the rosegarden. It's the best destination park in the entire Northwestern United Stated.

Came out from Connecticut to visit our son who lives in Tacoma. Were thrilled to get some outdoor time so close to an urban center. Beautiful Vistas, Peaceful Setting, Relaxing Environment.

Great place to take a walk or ride your bicycle with some of the best views of gardens and trails and it has everything to be entertained and even more so! The Japanese Pagoda's are so beautiful with lush flower gardens. And like i said so much more! A must see if in Tacoma.

We went catch and release fishing at the Marina right by Anthony's. It was so much fun to see what people were catching. There were Octopi, starfish, dogfish and more. They do offer boat rentals but we just stayed on the pier fishing. We had a group of adults and one toddler and it was a great way to spend the day.
