  • A great piece of Tacoma history that should never be forgotten. A great reminder of how valuable immigrant populations have been downtrodden and cast out. of course set in a beautiful location on the Tacoma waterfront. One of my favorite places to go when I just need a day at the ocean. 💗
  • Beautiful. Enchanting. Hidden in plain sight. We've driven by countless times but never stopped. Easy parking. The description tells us it was made to promote a deep sense of Peace, Healing and Reconciliation. Indeed, this was a step away from the world... just steps away from the world! A note about safety, I would not consider going after sunset.
  • Small park with minimalistic landscaping, attractive Chinese architecture, some beach access that's interesting at low tide, and a few benches with so-so waterfront views. It's not Tacoma's biggest effort, but definitely a must-read: following the meandering path through the park's features, visitors are confronted with signs sharing Tacoma's dark history of Chinese Exclusion. It's a sad tale, and photos of burning waterfront shacks and historical documents supplement the narrative.
  • It was a beautiful day, and we'd never been to the park. We walked around, took in everything and really enjoyed it overall.
  • Nice piece of history not many people are aware of
