The site for the future First Creek Park is at the civic confluence of Tacoma’s new Eastside Community Center, First Creek Middle School, and a new regional hiking trail. As such, the half-acre site has the critical potential to serve a cross-section of Tacoma’s Eastside. Drawing on the cultural narratives of the people of the Eastside, Studio Zewde is designing a catalytic gathering place, informed by traditions of gathering near the rivers and creeks of the foothills of Mount Tacoma. Construction is scheduled to be complete in 2020.
