“safer and nicer all the time”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

A pleasant park with a small lake, a botanical conservatory and nearby eats and drinks make this a great place on a nice day.

“Nice neighborhood park”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

This is a very pretty park with a nice one-mile trail around the pond. Loved nice seeing all the beautiful flowers. It was close to my hotel so it was a nice place to go for a little exercise outdoors rather than running on a boring treadmill.

“Beautiful Place for a Wedding too!”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Thirty years ago, I was married in the Seymour Conservatory in Wright Park. My husband and I lived in a small apartment next to the park and it has always been dear to us. Over the years some changes and improvements have been made to trails and facilities, but the sense of peace and beauty that emanates from this garden spot in the old heart of Tacoma is still there . The walking trails are perfect for a stroll or serious cardio, depending on your level of effort, and local watering holes on every side let you sit and enjoy the view of trees and grassy verges all year long. A good place to take kids or your great aunt for a day out, or just take a book and read next to the duck pond. The Conservatory is a wonder of exotic plants and amazing seasonal displays and still a beautiful place for an intimate "happily-ever-after" wedding.

“Bums Galore”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Unless you are running around the the out side jogging path I would stay away. Even though they have renovated the park they did not find a way to keep the bums and drug addicts out. Not a nice place for kids and avoid at dusk or dark

“A family park”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

Wright Park - is a great park for Tacoma folks and visitors to the area. The playground is great, for all ages. We love the waterpark in the summer or you could just stroll thru the park. A true gem in Tacoma.
