Town Square Park is a beautiful park at the center of Federal Way, WA. The park offers both a place for children to play and a place for community members to relax and enjoy nature. Town Square Park officially opened in the summer of 2016.

Speaking of Town Square Park, he said, “This is going to be the beating heart of our city.” Even if you are visiting from out of town, if your children are being rowdy and need to run around, a trip to Town Square Park is just what you need.
