May's Sketch Outings.

Freighthouse Square is a block away from the Tacoma Dome, it fronts E. 25th St at the corner of E. D Street.

Ample free parking is right across E. 25th St, but as they are building the new Amtrak terminal on one end of the long Freight-house building, East 25th Street is closed to one lane and cars must enter the Tacoma Dome Station garage from Puyallup Avenue (on the Greyhound station side of the multi-level garage).

Lunch can be had a multiple of cafes and restaurants inside the Food Court after our 12:30 PM sketch share and photo

There is a Red Robin 1.4 miles from Lakewold Gardens - 10311 Gravelly Lake Dr. SW

Walk the paths of Lakewold Gardens and you will be strolling through a period in garden history when classic European design came face to face with America's emerging landscape masters. It was a time when the South Sound's Lakes District was first being discovered and when Tacoma's new prominent families would introduce the world to their unique vision of a cultured country estate. With help from Thomas D. Church, a leading landscape architect of the 20th century, Eulalie Wagner made this garden her personal life project and generously left it for all to enjoy.
