At 71-acres, the Tacoma Nature Center preserve boasts more than 20 different species of mammals and about 100 species of birds. It is also home to reptiles, amphibians and native plant populations. The central feature of the Tacoma Nature Center is the 17-acre serpentine-shaped lake and wetland. The lake is home to the spectacularly colored wood duck, which frequently is seen at the first bridge. Mallards and Canada geese are common year-round residents. The plants and animals that live here are representative of those that share life with us in an urban environment. For the health of the ducks and geese, please refrain from feeding them.

It’s amazing how you can be right in the middle of Tacoma and be able to “escape” to a beautiful nature walk that just rejuvenates you. So beautiful in the springtime seeing turtles, birds, chipmunks, ant hills, flowers, raspberries, etc and large wooded area. We love this walk or run for anytime of day. Beautiful, fun park for the kids too.

The trail is not paved but easy for children. It’s a great learning experience for all ages since there’s a wonderful nature center with fun activities on the site. There’s a really nice play area too for the kids to play on. Great place for educational learning about ponds, watershed animals, water cycle and nature outdoors.

Nice short little trail tucked in between the pond and Route 16. My dogs enjoyed it, decent open parking, and not busy.

Muddy in places this time of year. Nice pocket of "wilderness" right in the middle of Tacoma. Have seen owls, raccoons, and deer on occasion. Sometimes the turtles are sunning themselves on the logs in the lake at the first bridge.
