Playground Report: Sunset Terrace
Tabitha has a report on a University Place park that’s family friendly and has a playground great for toddlers to big kids! Plus, it’s close to Fircrest and East Tacoma. What more could you want? Read on for all the scoop!
This University Place park is very close to Fircrest and East Tacoma on 19th St W, not far from Highway 16 and is a perfect spot to play with kids of all ages.
The playground is spread out so kids aren’t crammed together, and it’s a great park if you have multiple children.
A couple structures focus on ages 2-5. They’re not as tall, have small slides, a cute, small bench, and a small climbing wall that the little kids also use as a slide. The playground also has a bigger section for ages 5-12. It’s taller and has stuff to climb on and hang from. There are also swings for all ages and a tire swing to spin on. The playground isn’t fully fenced in, but it does have a fence adjacent to the main street.
There are benches around the park, some shade, a picnic shelter with tables, BBQ pits, power and water. The park has newly upgraded bathrooms and online reviewers say they’re clean. Yay!
This has always been a favorite park of ours: It’s perfect for a range of ages, clean, and in good condition, and in a great location. Not once have we felt unsafe. It’s also fairly easy to see the whole playground from one spot and it never seems too crowded.
Sunset Terrace Park also has a large grass field with a baseball diamond. Bring your baseball gear or let your children run free, but keep in mind it can get busy during baseball season.
Sunset Terrace Park is located at 1902 Seaview Street West, University Place WA. Note that parking is limited here, especially during busier times.
