Tacoma Off The Beaten Path: 57 reviews and 241 photos
There are two very distinct sections of Titlow Park: the developed part of the park that is covered in a previous tip, and the nearly undeveloped part of the park that is covered here. For the developed portion of the park, please see:
The northern section of the park is nearly completely covered in wild forest lands, with a few small trails through them. The exception to this is the privately held Tacoma Outboard Association building that is located at the far northern edge of this section of the park, and accessed through a wooden bridge over the railroad line.
This section of the park includes access to the beach, but to get there you have to go to the far northern part of the park and cross the railroad line on the wooden bridge for the driveway for the Tacoma Outboard Association. This bridge is only accessible by walking, unless you are a member of the Tacoma Outboard Association.
Do not try to cross the tracks on foot. People get killed trying to do that here. Several people get killed every year. The bridge is there for a reason. Please use it.
There are several trails that are fairly undeveloped in this part of the park, several benches, a picnic shelter without picnic tables, and possibly what was once a restroom facility that is closed.
The beach features a view north to the Tacoma Narrows Bridge and there are a few benches here and there along the edge of the sound with a partial view outward.
