Fort Steilacoom Park

As far as regional parks go, Fort Steilacoom Park is the crown jewel of the South Sound. At nearly 350 acres, it is the largest park in Lakewood and provides a diverse mix of active and passive recreation. It features an expansive trail system, baseball, softball and soccer fields, a state-of-the-art playground, off-leash dog park, picnic shelters and year round restrooms. The history of the park ranges from a military base to a self-sustaining farm for Western State Hospital to its current use as a park that boasts opportunities for passive and active recreation. It also offers a lake around which visitors can run or job, prairie lands, historical barns and trails. Fort Steilacoom Park is one of the official parking areas for the 2015 U.S. Open.
