About Tacoma

Tacoma was incorporated on November 12, 1875, following its selection in 1873 as the western terminus of the Northern Pacific Railroad due to lobbying by McCarver, future mayor John Wilson Sprague, and others. However, the railroad built its depot in New Tacoma, two miles (3 km) south of the Carr–McCarver development. The two communities grew together and joined, merging on January 7, 1884.

Tacoma, the birthplace of Dale Chihuly, a world-famous glass artist, is home to a vibrant creative community of writers and musicians, photographers and filmmakers, as well as passionate entrepreneurs and business owners.

Private investment has outperformed public investment in Tacoma by almost 4 to 1, with more than $1 billion being invested in downtown Tacoma alone. Urbanites love Tacoma's central location for its affordable living spaces and stunning views of the city, mountains, and water. Families gravitate to Tacoma's charming neighborhoods that offer big-city amenities.

Tacoma is a haven for runners, hikers, and cyclists. Students at the University of Washington Tacoma and the University of Puget Sound are active here. Tacoma's culinary experts and gourmands have created a scene for foodies. The city's museums, meeting spaces, and concert halls are world-renowned and attract visitors from all over the globe.

Tacoma is the county seat of Pierce County, Washington. A port city, it is situated along Washington's Puget Sound, 32 miles southwest of Seattle and 31 miles northeast of the state capital, Olympia. 

  • The population was 219,346, according to the 2020 census. Tacoma is the second-largest city in the Puget Sound area and the third-largest in the state. Tacoma also serves as the center of business activity for the South Sound region, which has a population of about 1 million.


  • Tacoma adopted its name after the nearby Mount Rainier. It is locally known as the "City of Destiny" because the area was chosen to be the western terminus of the Northern Pacific Railroad in the late 19th century. The decision of the railroad was influenced by Tacoma's neighboring deep-water harbor, Commencement Bay. 


  • Tacoma's motto became "When rails meet sails" by connecting the bay with the railroad. Commencement Bay serves the Port of Tacoma, a center of international trade on the Pacific Coast and Washington's largest port. The city gained notoriety in 1940 for the collapse of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge, which earned the nickname "Galloping Gertie."

Like most industrial cities, Tacoma suffered a prolonged decline in the mid-20th century due to suburbanization and divestment. Since the 1990s, downtown Tacoma has experienced a period of revitalization. Developments in the downtown include the University of Washington Tacoma; Line T, the first modern electric light rail service in the state; the state's highest density of art and history museums; and a restored urban waterfront, the Thea Foss Waterway.

Parks and recreation

Parks and recreation services in and around Tacoma are governed by Metro Parks Tacoma, a municipal corporation established as a separate entity from the city government in 1907. Metro Parks maintains over fifty parks and open spaces in Tacoma.

Point Defiance Park, one of the largest urban parks in the country, is in Tacoma. Scenic Five-Mile Drive allows access to many park attractions, such as Owen Beach, Fort Nisqually, and the Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium. Many historic structures within the park, including the Pagoda, were originally built as streetcar waiting rooms. 

Ruston Way is a waterfront area along Commencement Bay north of downtown Tacoma that hosts several public parks connected by a multi-use trail and interspersed with restaurants and other businesses. 

Wright Park, near downtown, is a large, English-style park designed in the late 19th century by Edward Otto Schwagerl and Ebenezer Rhys Roberts. It contains Wright Park Arboretum and the W. W. Seymour Botanical Conservatory. This historic park is also the home of local festivals such as Ethnic Fest and the Tacoma Hempfest. 

Jefferson Park in North Tacoma is the location of a new sprayground. It is designed to be a safe and unique play area where water is sprayed from structures or ground sprays and drained away before it can accumulate.
