The Foss Waterway Esplanade

Ariel picture of Foss Waterway

The Foss Waterway Esplanade is a linear park that provides an ideal location for jogging or a leisurely stroll to take in the public docks, marinas and public art installations. The esplanade was designed with the ABC’s of waterfront development in mind: access, boating, and character. Corridors provide access to and from Dock Street as well as preserve views from Downtown Tacoma. Educational signage tells the story of the Foss Waterway cleanup and the investment that has been made in the health of the Waterway.  Follow the esplanade from 21st Street Park to Thea’s Park and enjoy cultural facilities, museums and the historic warehouse structures.
