Now You Can Buy Ice Cream or Rent a Paddle Board in Some Tacoma Parks
You can now purchase ice cream, chips, juice, and fruit from concessionaires in several Tacoma parks. You can also rent a stand-up paddleboard on the Ruston Way waterfront.
Metro Parks' "Carts in Parks" program launched last weekend with vending carts from All City Vending in Wapato, Jefferson, and Titlow parks, the Verlo Playfield (formerly McKinley Playfield), and the Center at Norpoint. The carts will be in parks seven days a week, noon to 7 p.m. through September 30 as a part of the program to bring concessions to selected Tacoma parks.
Dolan's Board Sports has a stand for stand-up paddle board rentals at Jack Hyde Park on the waterfront near Old Town Dock. The boards rent by the hour, and lessons are available if you're new to SUP. From the Dolan's Facebook page, it also appears that they will be offering opportunities for SUP yoga classes for the more ambitious (and well-balanced) folks out there.
Not all of the parks originally listed as options for the carts program are listed here, so we could still see more parks added as summer progresses.
Who's ready to call it a day and go play in the park?
