Owen Beach 

8 acres

Client: Metro Parks Tacoma

Site Workshop is currently collaborating with Metro Parks Tacoma to revitalize Owen Beach, one of the region’s most visited and pristine beaches. A major destination within Point Defiance, Owen Beach is treasured as a place for beach-combing, family picnics, and tribal events. Through a broad framework of equity, ecology, and cultural sensitivity, the design team is preserving the essence of the place—the beach—while upgrading the site and infrastructure to serve future generations of Tacoma residents.
