Parks & Trails

Our Natural Resources

With over 1,200 acres of parkland and open space, miles of walking and biking trails, a premier regional athletic complex, three indoor public pools and several community buildings, Lacey’s residents and visitors enjoy one of the finest municipal park systems in the state. Complemented by Puget Sound’s pristine Tolmie State Park, the naturally-inspiring 3,700-acre Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge, four golf courses and five freshwater lakes, recreation opportunities are virtually unlimited.
