El Departamento de Parques del Condado de Pierce está trabajando para traer un sendero comunitario para conectar los vecindarios de Parkland con cinco escuelas, tres parques del condado y la Universidad Pacific Lutheran. El Sendero de la Comunidad Parkland proporcionará una ruta segura para personas de todas las edades para moverse en un área que actualmente tiene pocas aceras o carriles para bicicletas.

Community connections

The Parkland Community Trail will connect Parkland neighborhoods to five schools, three County parks and Pacific Lutheran University. The Parkland Community Trail will provide a safe route for people of all ages to get around in an area that currently has few sidewalks or bike lanes.
