Welcome to University Place – Located on the colorful and pleasant Puget Sound – home to more than 31,500 active residents. This city boasts beautiful scenic views of the Olympic Mountains, Mount Rainier and the Puget Sound. It’s definitely a unique treasure!
You can look forward to being less than a mile from the Chamber’s Bay Trail & Golf Course – The trail head is 3.25 miles round trip and with a nice incline. The views of Olympic Mountains will reward your efforts! If you enjoy golf – Chamber’s Bay Golf Course is one of the top courses in the nation and the first course in the Northwest to welcome the U.S. Open Championships. Their onsite restaurant – The Grill offers a nice weekend brunch and sunset dinners. They also have special events throughout the year like Easter, Mother’s Day & Father’s Day brunches. Check their page for upcoming events.
You can also easily access the Chamber’s Bay Park – open field with picnic tables and the Playground by the Sound – Fenced in playground helps keeps the kiddos from roaming. The equipment is nicely maintained and varied; swings, tunnels, slides and monkey bars. There’s a shaded picnic area on a concrete slab. One table is completely covered and the other is open, plus a few more tables out in the grassy areas. The bathroom is across the field, but is close.
There are also a series of short trails that are located within the Chambers Creek Canyon Trail. All trails are primitive in nature and allow people to experience a true urban forest setting. Watch for our deer and coyotes, which call the canyon home. Future plans call for an extension of this nature trail system, providing improved trail heads and linked trail segments.
The University Place Town Center is a 7 minute drive and offers Whole Foods, along with Anthem Coffee & Tea, Top Pot Doughnuts, University Place Library, Bliss Ice Cream, Jersey Mike’s Subs and more shops coming to this popular area!
Still a few months out, but you can look forward to this fun event in December – The University Place Tree Lighting. Bundle up and gather at the Market Square for the Lighting of the University Place Christmas Tree. Top Pot Doughnuts and Hometown Dogs provide snacks!
You’ll also find the Green Firs Towne Center too – Safeway, Starbucks, Sapporo Japanese Steakhouse, Home Goods, Trader Joe’s, Mud Bay, Gyro Zone and Fresh Rolls, Soggy Doggy and the Hand & Stone Massage Spa.
In the summer you can look forward to being just 10 minutes from the Narrows Marina – family owned and operated, Narrows Marina has been serving boat enthusiasts in Pierce County and the South Sound area since 1949. Enjoy a day out on the water and then swing back in for dinner and a local, craft beer at Boathouse 19 or Narrows Marina where you can enjoy a rotating selection of 14 craft beers.
