A sublime waterfront neighborhood encompassing Browns Point, and often by description includes a greater piece of Northeast Tacoma, this quiet community offers suburban appeal with a serene landscape. Overlooking Commencement Bay with Olympic Mountain vistas, residents of Browns Point often commute to the business centers of Tacoma for work. Recreation is just steps from their doorstep, whether they seek a hike along the beach, a trip to North Shore Public Golf Course, or seeking adventure at neighboring Dash Point State Park. Both nearby public and private schools provide exceptional educational opportunities, while SR-509 connects residents Federal Way, Tacoma, and additional transit options.
The landmark of the community is the Browns Point Light House, currently under restoration by the Points Northwest Historical Society. When first lit on December 12, 1887, the lighthouse was fully manned. The lighthouse is now completely automated, but it and the surrounding park is an essential stop for residents and visitors of Browns Point.
