Last night Jim and Mike presented the schematic design for the 1st phase of Metro Parks Tacoma’s Swan Creek Park. The meeting was open to the public, and held at the Portland Avenue Community Center in Tacoma’s Eastside neighborhood, where the 380-or so acre park lies.
The meeting was attended by neighborhood residents, former-residents, members of the Friends of Swan Creek, community gardeners, and other folks interested in the proposed improvements. The plan calls for a new gathering space focused around community gardening. This area will serve as a launching point for park visitors to venture off into the miles of wooded trails being added at the park. The improvements will surely give east side residents a good means to access and behold this gem of a park.
