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.
Last month, Metro Parks Tacoma held a public meeting to discuss Browns Point Lighthouse Park, which is located at 201 Tulalip St. NE, in Tacoma, and hear from the community about parking options, accessibility improvements, and general park enhancements. The entire park improvement project is expected to be completed by Dec. 31, 2015.
During a public meeting this week, attendees will have an opportunity to review three schematic design options to improve the park. The meeting will be held on Thurs., May 22, at 6 p.m., at the Parish Hall at St. Matthew Episcopal Church, located at 6800 Eastside Dr. NE, in Tacoma.
