Satellite and Wright Park

the perfect evening combination

Wow, what a difference from a few years ago. My sweetheart and I had the best cup of coffee (in the world, imho) and a lovely walk around the Wright Park pond in the glow of the setting sun last night.

A few years ago, there was no Satellite Coffee and Wright Park had a scary and unfortunately accurate nickname.

Last night, I was amazed by the beauty of the park with it's newly refurbished pathways, new benches, wonderful bridge, ducks, squirrels, pond with fountain and good landscaping, and gleaming statues. The deciduous trees are sprouting new buds, blossoms, and light green leaves. Spring is springing! The public bath has a fresh coat of paint and everything looks so clean in preparation for Saturday's re-opening celebration. The celebration looks like it will be fun, but I doubt that the park could possibly look as pretty as it did for us last night. Check out these pictures that my true love shot...

Living really close to the park, I've been enjoying watching everything come together. As weather gets nicer my friend and I have started playing music in the park, which has been a lot of fun. It's a much better place to practice than an apartment with a grumpy neighbor.

(will probably be out there tonight, actually)

I don't live in the area but love the park. We'll be there for Ethnic Fest. Thanks for the update and pictures

Hopefully, the new design and other improvement and excitement about Wright Park will be able to keep it from being dominated again by Chronic Public Inebriates.


Hello! I'm Heather and I'm a bit manic about Tacoma.

I'll probably be blogging about my experiences in Tacoma as they relate to the environment (natural and built), social (in)justice, community building, economic development, bio-diesel, public transit, biking, gardening, home improvement, food & wine, and my little family (me, my husband, one dog, one cat). This is my first attempt at writing a blog - so please bear with me.
