Parkland
Parkland is located 8 miles south of Tacoma, on the main route to nearby Mt. Rainier. It was given its name by early white settlers, who thought the vast Garry Oak and blue camas flower prairie, and the many meandering creeks crossing it, was indeed a parkland. In 1890, Norwegian-Americans from the mid-west chose it for the location of their new college, which today is Pacific Lutheran University, home to 3,500 full-time students and to the Lutes.
