Discover the beauty of nature at this attraction in Tacoma, Washington.

Tacoma Nature Center is open from 8:30 am to 30 minutes after dusk. The Nature Center is family-friendly with engaging hands-on learning activities for kids and adults. Explore this museum full of artifacts and watch an informative film about the history of this region. It was once a tribal area to the Native Americans, which later built railroad tracks making train travel accessible to the residents of Snake Lake. The Tacoma Nature Center has several hiking trails surrounding Snake Lake and features wetlands and forest. Many visitors come each year to see the unique landscape, natural wildlife, and plants.

Enjoy the self-interpretive walking trails. There is a free app that teaches about the plants and animals that you may see along the way. The walking trails are marked and visitors must stay on the trail to protect the fragile ecosystem here. A half-mile trail is ADA accessible for person's in wheelchairs. You can come walk around the center Monday through Saturday from 9 am to 4 pm.  If you want to buy a souvenir or pick up a trail map, head to the gift shop located in the Nature Center. Please note that the gift shop requires a reusable bag or purchase of paper bags for shoppers. A featured activity here at Tacoma Nature Center is the Discovery Pond. The Discovery Pond is an outdoor area that is ideal for kids to play and engage with the nature around them. They have tree slides, treehouses, plants, and more. The Discovery Pond is open from 9:30 am to 30 minutes after dusk.
