Metro Parks Tacoma manages over 2,696 acres of parks and green space, historic landmarks, community centers, beautiful gardens and special attractions that give us all a chance to get out and play more.
We're asking you to "chip in" by investing your time and talents to help us improve parks and green spaces, protect neighborhood buildings and promote a healthy environment while helping to build a stronger community.
CHIP-in! originated in 2003 when Metro Parks faced a lack of funds for maintaining all of the city's parks. Rather than take drastic measures - simply closing parks and walking away - we took a proactive approach by developing a partnership between the park district and the community that helps keep parks open and usable.
