FROM THE SELLER –
“We will miss the neighborhood, the yard, and the home itself. Our neighbors have become friends and we love the stability that our neighbors have brought to the neighborhood the past 10 years. We will miss gardening, hosting events in our yard, and the apples in the fall. Lastly, we will greatly miss our home and the memories of raising a young family and celebrating with friends over the years.
We live living right across the street from Tacoma’s first park, sitting on the porch watching our kids play. We love the Hilltop street fair and other events at People’s Park.
Two local coffee shops (Manifesto & Red Elm), pho, Vietnamese, and donuts are favorites just a few blocks away.
Day lilies in the spring, roses & Asiatic/calla lilies throughout summer, apples in the fall.”
Tacoma’s first park known as Ferry Park is right across the street from this home. This neighborhood park has a playground, picnic tables, along with hard & soft trails, and a half acre of grassy area to play.
You’ll love this location as it is in very close vicinity to People’s Community Center – they have fitness, a swimming pool, rental facilities and are open Monday – Sunday. Located at the heart of the Hilltop Community. People’s Park serves Tacoma’s Hilltop community with amenities for both active and passive recreation. This park is 2.14 acres and offers a playground, plus picnic sites, a large field and basketball court. Lots of community events here in the summer!

Pho King – Voted Best Vietnamese in South Sound Magazine in 2017! They have everything from really big bowls of Pho, to rice noodle bowls, Bahn Mi, and more!
Get a $4 Belgian Waffle and a warm cup of strong coffee at the Red Elm Cafe. Always say yes to the whipped cream & their strawberry jam drizzled on top, add some syrup too if you’re a risk taker. They also have breakfast and lunch sandwiches on the menu, along with a variety of other hot beverages.
