For ad hoc outings, go to that page. 

First Saturday Aug 4: Chinese Reconciliation Park

Meet at 10 am in the parking lot.  KaCe & Alison are hosts for this outing. 

Though the map shows it on Ruston Way, the City of Tacoma website lists the address as:
1741 N Schuster Parkway, Tacoma, WA 98402

"The park design is a mixture of traditional Chinese scholar’s style gardens and beautiful natural waterfront setting.  The Chinese Reconciliation Park is a 4 acre park that is located at the southern end of the 1.5-mile Ruston Way waterfront along Commencement Bay, and is in the proximity of the early Chinese settlement that was burned down during the tragic expulsion."

"A "Ting" is a Chinese pavilion.  The Fuzhou Ting was donated by Fuzhou, China, one of Tacoma's Sister Cities, in support of our Chinese reconciliation efforts."
