Tacoma Off The Beaten Path: 57 reviews and 241 photos
Pierce Transit operates a small bus layover facility in downtown Tacoma, connected to several parking lots and a few other facilities. It was built to compliment the downtown area, and therefore a plaza was constructed on top of all these facilities.
As this plaza is located right next door to several of Tacoma's major theatres, naturally it would be called "Theatre Square". There is a fairly extensive fountain, several sculptures, and open grass with a few scattered park benches. There are a fair number of medium sized trees with various low growing shrubs as well.
Some of the sculptures and other artwork in the park are fairly hidden, and it takes some time to discover, for example, the theatre masks on the upper level of the park on the walkway connecting the plaza to a parking garage.
Also be sure to check the wall on the building on the south side of the plaza: it is all one very large mural that helps add depth to the plaza.
The plaza is located just south of the Broadway Center for the Performing Arts, between Commerce Street and Broadway. It is surrounded by buildings but is approximately where 10th Street would intersect these streets if it were a through street.
