We understand exercise, especially in an outdoor environment, is important for our health and wellness, and we encourage residents to get outside as much as possible -- while practicing social distancing and precautionary sanitation measures. We ask that guests experiencing any flu or cold-like symptoms remain home and that everyone follow the Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department’s guidance.

Thank you for your understanding as we continue to support efforts to contain COVID-19 and protect the health of our customers, employees and community. 

We encourage you to keep checking this page for updates.
