Additional leisure activities near JBLM

The waterfront at Harry Todd Park has reopened after several months of construction. There’s a fishing pier, swimming beach, boat launches, new playground, picnic areas, and all sorts of stuff to do.

There have been eagles circling overhead for each of my recent visits; always fun to see. I’m hearing lots of fishing stories about yellow perch and rainbow trout, so the fishing seems great. Make sure to get a fishing license.

Crowds at American Lake Park have settled down quite a bit. It’s not quite as bustling as it got just before the heat wave. A new mural is now complete on the wall facing the lakefront beach. There is also a public doc at Lake Steilacoom, if American Lake is too busy.
