Public meeting April 15 to discuss Browns Point Lighthouse Park improvements

Metro Parks Tacoma will hold a public meeting this month to discuss improvements to Browns Point Lighthouse Park.

According to Metro Parks Tacoma’s Web site, the $84.3 million bond measure approved by voters in 2005 directed $500,000 toward the park to create accessible pathways and a promenade, demolish the existing parking garage, create additional parking, and provide new park furnishings. In 2008, the garage was removed and a gravel area was created for temporary parking. Three years later, roof replacement projects on Keeper’s cottage, history center, boathouse, and bellhouse were completed.

During a public meeting on Tues., April 15, at 6 p.m. at St. Matthew Episcopal Church (Parish Hall), 6800 Eastside Dr. NE, attendees will have an opportunity to share their ideas about parking options, accessibility improvements, and general park enhancements. The entire park improvement project is expected to be completed by Dec. 31, 2015.

Browns Point Lighthouse Park is located at 201 Tulalip St. NE, in Tacoma.
