III. Van Lierop Park

7529 134th Ave E, Puyallup, WA 98372

Ok, so not technically a 'park' perse as there is no playground. Nonetheless, it is a great option for a fun little outing. There are glorious, huge, fields with Lupines as far as you can see. The cement walking path with take you down through the flower fields. The path is great for strollers or wagons, and for older kiddos to run, jump, skip, and have a great time - plus take some of that energy! At the end of the path is a large circle area (all pavement) and a swinging bench to sit on which faces a great view of Mt. Rainier! An entrance to the Orting walking trail is just across the street, or take a lunch break at Farm 12.
