Titlow Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The property at Titlow Park was once home to Washington’s first tidewater resort hotel, the Hotel Hesperides, which opened in 1911. Today, only a Swiss-style chalet known as Titlow Lodge remains and is used as a community center. Titlow Park’s trails include a paved beach promenade at a popular diving spot (Titlow Beach Marine Preserve) and a route along a natural scenic shoreline and through acres of woods.

Tucked between the Narrows Bridge and Day Island in a beach community on Puget Sound known as Titlow Beach, Tacoma’s Titlow Park attracts everyone from scuba divers to Little League teams, beachcombers, and hikers. Views of the Narrows Bridge, Puget Sound, Kitsap Peninsula, and Fox Island make this beachfront park a great place to take in the stunning scenery the region offers. Titlow Park is best hiked in a loop, beginning at the end of Sixth Avenue. Walk north (or right, facing the water) on the promenade that runs between the beach and the railroad tracks."

"Accessible urban birding doesn’t get much easier than from the paved walkways with views of the Tacoma Narrows at Titlow Park in Tacoma. The fifty-four-acre park is one of the most reliable places in the state to see nesting Purple Martin from April through September, and as the seasons pass, the site also features views of Bonaparte’s Gulls feeding in flocks on the narrows, close-up looks at Common Loons, large flocks of American Wigeon, and Western Grebes gathered on the swift waters between the park and Fox Island."
