Explore the historic trail through downtown Tacoma in this 1.5 mile walk, led by Michael Sean Sullivan! The walk will begin at 6:00 PM on Wednesday, April 19 at Tollefson Plaza. Prairie Line Trail is full of history, stories, public art, and walkable spaces that serve to connect the waterfront, downtown, University, and Brewery Districts. According to the official Prairie Line Website, “it’s Tacoma’s story in 5,280 feet.”
Downtown On the Go is partnering with historic preservationist Michael Sean Sullivan to learn beyond the interpretive signs, explore the work that went into creating the railway, and its journey to becoming a trail throughout Downtown Tacoma.
We are happy to meet disability accommodation needs with advance notice.
After the in-person walk, the tour will be available on the free GeoTourist app.
The Walk Tacoma series, sponsored by MultiCare, is a five-event walking series. The fun, themed walks, now in their fourteenth year, encourage people to enjoy Tacoma on foot by introducing new walking routes and sharing information about the community and its history through the guided tours.
