Kandle Park - Tacoma

Kandle Park is best known as the location for the Wave Pool, a small water park run by Pierce County. But, there are normal (and free) park amenities in Kandle Park. These include a large kids playground area, including a mini-sprayground next to the play equipment, a small skate park, walking trails, and a huge grassy field for sports activities.
The Pool at Kandle Park is a 7,500 square foot zero-depth wave pool, with four 25 meter lap lanes, spray toys, separate spraypool, and support buildings.

In 1955, Leona Maude Kandle left the bulk of her estate to the Metropolitan Park District of Tacoma for the establishment of a public playground "for girls and women as well as boys and men". Ms. Kandle directed that the new park be called George B. Kandle Playfield, in honor of her late father. The Park Board planned to use the funds to develop playgrounds adjacent to Downing Elementary and Stanley Elementary. Eventually all the money went to the development of Kandle Park.
