In the city know for its daffodils, this park is one of the oldest parks in Puyallup. Nestled on the south hillside just off 23rd and just behind the Good Samaritan Hospital, Wildwood Park is gem.
Starting at a playground where a lovely creek meanders through, children love to climb and splash here on a hot day under the trees. Lovely covered picnic areas are also available and you can be reserved in advance.
For the more venturesome families, a guided storybook made recently available by the Puyallup Rotary, encourages young readers to find the child height pages along a trail and participate in a movement activity. Perfect for young elementary kids.
Young adults and parents can take their own physical challenge here too as the trail has adult height pushup stations, sit-up stations, pull-up bars, and then challenges you to do it within a certain amount of time while running between stations.
Trails along the outer borders have bird feeders, geocaches, painted rock collections and baseball fields. We easily put on 3 miles with some hills to get the heart pumping.
There truly is something for everyone here.
And if yours is to simply sit amongst some of the tallest trees within the City of Puyallup, you might find a book to read in the Little Free Library too.
Wildwood Park is gem for families.
