No More Go-Karts at Point Defiance… Probably…
The go-karts that have been a part of the Point Defiance landscape for nearly 30 years won't be there much longer.
Apparently go-karts aren't a part of Metro Parks' long-term vision for what the park should be, and last month they informed the owner that his lease will not be renewed when it runs out at the end of 2014.
Long-term park plans show a mixed-use area, including a pedestrian bridge, open space, and parking on the triangle of land that is currently home to the go-karts.
The News Tribune reports that the business owner wants to stay, and is looking to the public to voice support for his business.
Do you want to fight to keep the go-karts where they are? Will you be glad to see them go? What other Tacoma location could be a new home for the go-karts?
