Bradley Lake Park in Puyallup has a full suite of amenities including a paved walking trail around the lake. The park is equipped with a large parking area, restrooms, two ballfields, a large picnic shelter, open grassy areas and about 1.5 miles of paved, barrier-free trails. 

From the large parking area, head out on the short connector trail toward the lake. It’s also here that you will find restrooms. You will soon link up with the trail that encircles the lake. For a nice loop, pick a direction and start walking. The entire loop is about one mile long. The northwestern portion of this loop is mostly out in the open, passing by a few gravel trails that go down to the shore. The rest of the loop goes through a forested portion of the park. 

When the weather is nice on the weekends the park can be quite popular and it may be hard to find parking in the lot. You may be able to find street parking nearby, or consider heading here on a weekday to beat the crowds.

Wheelchair Accessibility

A flat and paved trail here loops around the perimeter of the park
