What to do in Waller Road Area

Architecture

Like any city, Tacoma's architecture tells the story of the various generations that have called Tacoma home. This is as true for its neighborhoods, as it is for the city at large.

What the Neighbors are Saying

It's one thing to form an opinion based on your first impressions of a neighborhood, but it's another to hear from the people who call it home.

The geography and architecture of Old Town are fascinating. You'll get views from every place you go. And the pre-war homes are a fascination in and of themselves.

My daughter went to Bethel Schools and graduated from GK with honors. She had a good experience. They really prepared their students to be college-bound. She graduated from Central Washington University and has started her own business.

I love how far out I am from the hustle and bustle of being “in town” yet I’m close to Tacoma and South Hill for anything I need.

Vanessa

The farms around me, the natural beauty, Mt Rainier views, lovely neighbors, scenic drives and lots of wildlife.

It's the perfect temperature: a neighborhood that's very close to the urban center with amazing views, charming homes, and walkable to tons of great places to eat.

Our neighborhood is like living with a lot of family members. When we ask for volunteers more than 100 show up. When there is a need, within an hour most times the problem is solved. We love art, festivals and food. Our first street fair in many years brought in over 20,000 people. We partnered with all the businesses and the church on McKinley Ave. We had a carnival that was free for all gave away 1500 backpacks, free haircuts, physicals and health checks to all.

I like the old homes and lower rents and proximity to transportation: bus, rail, freeway. But I don't like the crime and bad landlords. Perhaps if the County moves offices to the old PS Hospital, it will bring a revitalization to the area and more commerce and retail.

There's a very active neighborhood group. People are friendly. The new County Building was just given the 'go ahead' by the County Council. Huge new improvement to the neighborhood in a couple of years!

Homes are incredibly affordable, and the neighborhood is the most diverse in the city, and definitely has a family feel. I serve on the Eastside Community Council, and can attest to the passionate zeal Eastsiders have for their community. A summertime street fair on McKinley Ave brings the best of the community together. It doesn't hurt having the best bar in town on the east side either--Top of Tacoma.
