Blueberries are Peaking

By Kristin Kendle on September 13, 2012

If you haven't been to Charlotte's Blueberry Park in Tacoma, you're missing out. Big time. Because there are free blueberries here.

Located close to the corner of S 72nd and D Street, the blueberry park covers 20 acres of parklands managed by Metro Parks Tacoma-10 acres are covered with more than 3,700 blueberry bushes.

The park is maintained by a volunteer force. Best of all, no pesticides or fertilizers are used on the trees.

Right now, the blueberries are at their peak and will be for another couple weeks. The park is open from a half hour before sunrise to a half hour after sunset.
