Location

Fort Steilacoom Park

At 340 acres, Fort Steilacoom Park is the largest park in Lakewood and provides a diverse mix of active and passive recreation. Features include an expansive trail system, baseball, softball and soccer fields, a state-of-the-art playground, permanent orienteering course, a radio controlled aircraft area for hobbyists, off-leash dog park, two picnic shelters and year-round restrooms. We even have a dedicated 5k route through our trails and walkers can follow the Discovery Trail markers around our nearly 1-mile long paved Waughop Lake Trail loop. In 2018 the City, in partnership with the Rotary Club of Lakewood, built an enclosed Pavilion at the park, perfect for summer concerts with outdoor grass seating or for the public to rent for receptions or as a meeting space. With all its amenities, Fort Steilacoom Park has become a regional draw boasting more than 1 million visitors annually. It is also rich in history. The park, and surrounding land that is now developed, was used by the Nisqually and Steilacoom Indian tribes as a food source and gathering place before settlers and fur traders moved into the region.

Lakewood, Wash.

In Lakewood, history runs deep. Here the Nisqually people fished and traded. Here generals and presidents kept camp. And here soldiers trained to stem the tide of tyranny around the world. But we’re more than our past, the periods of pain and the “good old days” alike. We honor our past but embrace a future full of opportunity. A future in which our already award-winning schools and community colleges become the pride of our city. A future in which our first responders receive the recognition they deserve for making Lakewood safe and secure. A future in which Lakewood is known for its beautiful parks and lakes, our established, tree-lined neighborhoods, our unique and affordable housing, and our re-emerging downtown. A future that releases entrepreneurs to build something special in a business climate that removes barriers to success and creates incentives for investment. A future in which servicemen and women at the fourth largest military base in the world choose Lakewood not just as a temporary home but as their forever home.
