The Grand Plaza is the centerpiece of Point Ruston, the Pacific Northwest’s premier waterfront destination. Over one acre in size, the Grand Plaza at Point Ruston features panoramic waterfront views, a state-of-the-art children’s sprayground, and a waterfront amphitheater perfect for events and concerts.
Here are some of the highlights of the Grand Plaza at Point Ruston:
- Fantastic Views of the Bay: While enjoying the Grand Plaza, be sure to take in the jaw-dropping views of the Puget Sound waterfront. Views span from the white-capped Olympic Mountains and continue along the picturesque shoreline of Commencement Bay all the way to Mount Rainier looming over downtown Tacoma, you really can see it all.
- Children’s Sprayground: Bring the kids to enjoy the Grand Plaza’s state-of-the-art sprayground that mimics the motion of salmon swimming upstream. Be sure to stick around after the sun goes down for a colorful led fountain light show from dusk to 10pm. Open 7 days a week, 12pm to 10pm (Except during special events).
- Dining: Point Ruston already boasts several fantastic restaurants including Wildfin American Grill located adjacent to the Grand Plaza, Farrelli’s Northwest Pizza, Mio Sushi, Dolce Sí, and TwoTown Pub and Cafe: with many more restaurants opening in the coming years.
- Concerts and Seasonal Events:The Grand Plaza is the perfect venue for concerts and outdoor activities, that can even convert to an ice rink during the holiday season. Check our events page for information on upcoming events on the plaza.
