Fife's Agricultural Heritage A Highlight of Area's Dacca Park

Train whistles calling as they pass along tracks near the suburban Pierce county enclave of Fife, WA are familiar sounds to most area residents as they go about their daily lives.

Not surprisingly a bona fide train engine, caboose and full-sized barn are part of the popular park complex which also includes the City of Fife Historical Museum at Dacca Park. Located blocks away from the bustling lanes of traffic on I-5 and Highway 18, Dacca Park is a quiet and calming bit of paradise where South Sound residents and their families can enjoy the outdoors, delve into local history and check out the mode of transportation that originally made the settlement and growth of this rapidly expanding community possible.

Dacca Park is located at 2820 54th Avenue East. Facilities also include four fields for sofball and baseball, a basketball court, sand volleyball court, big toy and track.
