Jack Hyde Park

2201 Ruston Way
Tacoma, WA 98402

Located on the water's edge in Old Town, this park was renamed for a former Tacoma mayor and leader in developing the Ruston Way waterfront.


Jack Hyde Park was initially purchased by the City of Tacoma from the Tacoma Boatbuilding Company in 1972. The park expanded to five acres with additional land purchases in 1973 and 1976. Old Town dock, which is part of the overall park area, was originally acquired before World War I. Read more about the history of Jack Hyde Park on Commencement Bay.
