The park is designed to adapt to all children, with ramps to transfer and spin and seat transfer elements.
There are swings and a high backed swing.
The play structure offers both ground and elevated elements and is full of manipulatives, instruments, and a spin web to help encourage imagination.
There are picnic tables and benches around the park and some shaded areas. There is no enclosed area.
Another neat summer activity is the water spray feature, that has zero depth access. So everyone can join in the fun. 🙂
The surface material throughout the park is either soft rubber or mulch — almost every element has the soft rubber surface under it, making it accessible for wheelchairs and strollers.
There is no parking lot, but there was plenty of street parking around the park.
Bottom Line: A great park for all ages and abilities.
All in all… Wright Park was amazing!
We spent 2 hours just walking around and exploring.
We all loved the Conservatory.
It is definitely something to check out when you are visiting.
My sons favorite part were the Koi at the Conservatory.
I loved the various statues around the park and the old lights the lined the paths.
I imagine it is awesome walking through the park at night.
Walking along the paths made me feel like I was in the Disney movie “101 Dalmatians”… lol.
The volunteers and Tacoma Parks and Recreation department truly take excellent care of the grounds.
The park is quite clean and the trees and shrubs were nicely maintained.
My husband loved the various trees and shrubs throughout the park.
One thing that we all disliked was people’s lack of respect for cleaning up their pet waste.
After visiting and talking with other people whom have gone there, I have learned that it is a must to see in the spring, as everything is blooming and the trees regain their leaves.
And in the fall as the leaves change and start to fall.
