Fort Steilacoom Park, Lakewood, WA
Fort Steilacoom Park is a lovely place with history and nature. One of the earliest military installations in the Washington Territory, the park also housed a notorious state mental hospital that overlooked the Waughop Lake until the late 20th Century. Now, you can see eagle, Great Horned Owls, cormorants, and many other species. It's a great place to walk, run, and ride.
