about Northwest Trek:
We loved the park's varied terrain and habitats - this is a beautiful place to visit aside from the grizzlies, brown bears, eagles, big cats, and wetland animals that inhabit it. The eight-year-old and three-year-old in our party were enchanted by the animals; the park gives kids a chance to get almost eye-to-eye with large animals they've probably never seen before.
Pack a lunch or eat at the reasonably priced Fir Bough Cafe. All trails and walks are paved and stroller-friendly, and strollers/wagons can be rented for $5-$7 per day.
During the summer, kids ages six-12 can attend Day Camps at the park. Kids are divided into age-appropriate groups, and delve into hands-on nature themes, crafts, and adventures.
Family Camp is offered on summer weekends, an overnight camp that includes treats around the campfire, a tram tour, crafts, a chance to stargaze, Saturday evening snack, and Sunday breakfast.
Pierce County residents, military, and AAA members save $1-$2 on admission.
