Metro Parks has announced the addition of several new features to enhance visitor's enjoyment of our local jewel, Point Defiance Park. Beginning Memorial Day, a new visitor center and shuttle will operate during the summer weekends. The shuttle will have 8 stops that loop to the waterfront, Fort Nisqually, the zoo, 5-mile drive and the rose garden.
The visitor center will be located in the Lodge next to the gardens. The center begins operations with free guided tours on Saturday, May 26th, and open thereafter on Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 5 pm with hourly shuttle service on Friday and Saturday. Sounds like a good reason to stroll down to the park this summer!
