Franklin Park Monthly Work Parties

FranklinPark9:00am - noon, 2nd Saturday Each Month

Metro Parks Tacoma, the Central Neighborhood Council, and the Friends of South 12th Street neighborhood group have joined together to clean up and improve Franklin Park (S. 12th St. & Puget Sound Ave). We have monthly work parties and we need a few helping hands. Bring your work gloves and your “can do” attitude.  Meet at the banner displayed on work party mornings on S. 12th Street, or up the open maintenance road from that banner.

Work parties have addressed the overgrown wooded area at the northeast corner of the park, trimming up trees and removing brush that creates an unsafe and unattractive environment. Our long term goal is to create a walking and jogging path that loops around the entire park. Help us clean up, maintain, and transform our neighborhood park!
