News & Highlights
360 Trails upcoming closure
Due to a mountain biking race event, The 360 Harvester, public access to 360 Trails will be closed from 9 am to 3 pm on Saturday, October 31. This will ensure optimum safety of event participants and the general public. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
Wire theft at Volunteer Park
Sometime between August 31 and September 1 someone cut and pulled out the wiring in all six ball field lights at Volunteer Park. While the missing material will only garner a few dollars for the thief/thieves, this incident will cost Key Pen Parks – and the taxpayers of the Key Peninsula – about $20,000 to fix.
We hope community members like you will remain aware and vigilant and report any suspicious activity or vehicles you may see when driving by or enjoying any of the park properties. In these cases, please call 9-1-1 before reaching out to Key Pen Parks (253-884-9240). Anyone with information about this crime, please call the Pierce County Sheriff Department’s non-emergency line at 253-798-4721, #1. You may also call this number when reporting any incidents which are no longer in progress.
And as we often say, increased park usage by the good citizens of Key Peninsula plays a very key role in deterring unwanted activity in our parks and keeping them safe for our families and neighbors. The more good people there are in our parks, the more secure they will be!
