The City of Tacoma is excited to announce the launch of Prairielinetrail.org, a new mobile website and walking tour!
The website offers an opportunity to learn about the historic significance of the Prairie Line Trail, a new linear park and multi-use path that follows the tracks of the terminus of the transcontinental railroad.
Experience the trail from a desktop or mobile device, and learn about historic buildings, public art, and other sites of interest. Intended for first-time visitors and long-time residents alike, this site-specific experience provides an opportunity for users to experience the Prairie Line Trail and surrounding neighborhood in a new way.
We are grateful to the committed group of stakeholders who have helped to launch this project.

In addition to the new website, five newly-commissioned public art pieces are cropping up along the Prairie Line Trail. Three have been installed, and the remaining two will be installed by Spring 2018.
As part of Arts Month, mark your calendar for the dedication and artists panel, which will provide an opportunity to learn about the artists’ approach to working with historic resources and themes.
