Welcome to the Parks and Recreation Department 

Our goal is to provide parks and recreation services that are creative, beneficial, and responsive to the needs of the community. 

Tumwater is a city with a wealth of natural beauty and a strong sense of community spirit and pride. Our rich history and abundance of trees and natural areas are just a part of what attracts visitors and locals alike. The parks and open spaces in Tumwater provide both active and passive recreation opportunities for thousands of users each year, offering a wide variety of ways to enjoy our city and lifestyle in Tumwater. These opportunities include:  youth and adult sports, picnics, reunions, children’s activities, sports camps, and access to children’s play structures, trail, water, and more.
