Waterfront views and a bucolic community draw residents to the Dash Point neighborhood. Its proximity to Dash Point State Park ensures that those who live there can partake in a lifestyle that encapsulates the outdoor Pacific Northwest at its finest. While the area lacks a downtown, nearby amenities include cafes, convenience stores, and an abundance of local businesses.
Home to the state park also bearing its name, Dash Point is an unincorporated community along the shores of the Puget Sound, across Commencement Bay from Tacoma. Its utility and services are provided by the City of Tacoma, and while the neighborhood largely lies in Pierce County, the state park is just over the border in King County.
