About the Park

Frontier Park is situated in one of the fastest growing areas of Pierce County, on Meridian between Puyallup and Graham. The park is home to many uses, including the Pierce County Fair, Highland Games, equestrian shows, scouting events, car shows, quarter midget track racing competitions, and casual recreation. 

This majestic complex is 71 acres filled with large wooded and turf areas. A $1.3 million renovation project has transformed the former home economics building at Frontier Park into a rustic lodge and provided a link to local history. More than twice as large as the original building, Frontier Lodge was dedicated during a ribbon cutting ceremony on July 12, 2007.

Horse Mounting Ramp

On August 11, 2019 we dedicated the installation of a horse mounting ramp, designed to assist individuals with mobility issues to safely mount and dismount a horse. 

Procurement and installation of the ramp was made by possible by a grant from the Governor’s Committee on Disability Issues & Employment through the Pierce County Accessible Communities Advisory Committee.

The remodeled playground is 5,800 square feet, featuring slides, talk tubes, a tunnel, overhead ladders, bridges, crow’s nest, swings, climbing wall and more. The access ramps and colorful recycled rubber surfacing allows easy access and improved safety for all users.
