City of Puyallup

New Year, New You

Want to turn over a new leaf for the New Year? The City of Puyallup offers several programs and opportunities that can help you achieve your New Year’s resolutions and kick start a happier and healthier 2015.

Resolve to Get Fit
The start of a new year is the perfect time to refocus on getting fit. Walk, run, bike or play your way to better health at the Puyallup Recreation Center. From Tennis, Softball, and Volleyball to Pilates and Tai Chi, the City of Puyallup offers many opportunities to have fun and get back in shape. Learn more about sport and fitness offerings for all ages by visiting the Winter 2015 Recreation Guide. Prefer to ride or run outdoors? The Riverwalk Trail also offers a scenic and traffic-free route for your New Year’s workout.

Resolve to Read More
The Puyallup Public Library is an excellent source of information and imagination in our community. Get easy access to thousands of books, CDs, DVDs, newspapers, magazines and audio books. No matter what your age and interest, you can always find a program, activity or class that is just right for you! The Library also offers resources such as computer terminals with word-processing software and internet-access, and free Wi-Fi service. Visit the Puyallup Library website to learn more about their various programs and service offerings.

Resolve to Get Involved
Did you know that Volunteering is not just an excellent way to get involved in your community, it can also help you to learn new skills, find friends, and even advance your career? Whether you would like to assist City Hall visitors, staff the front counter at the Police Department or help with Parks and Recreation’s special events, the City of Puyallup has various volunteer opportunities to accommodate many different interests and schedules. Visit the City Volunteering page to view all the City departments that have ongoing opportunities for volunteers.

The City will be updating traffic signals at two intersections, E Main/15th St SE and S Meridian/7th Ave SE, in the week of Jan 26. The signals will include a ‘Flashing Yellow Arrow’ which will replace the ‘Green Ball’ signal to provide safer, more efficient left turns for motorists. Visit the project page to view illustrations and learn more about the Flashing Yellow Arrow signal.


The City of Puyallup is seeking qualified applicants interested in submitting a request for proposal for public defender services for the Puyallup Municipal Court. Click here to view the scope of services for Puyallup.


Following recent heavy rain and high river levels, a 100-yard section of the Riverwalk Trail (between the 11th Street access and the trail end) has been closed to the public. This section of the trail is in danger of failing and collapsing toward the Puyallup River. The impacted section of the trail will be reopened after safety reassessment. Call the Recreation Center at (253) 841-5457 for additional information.

Construction of the Kiwanis Kids Spray Park at Pioneer Park is well underway. Phase 2 of the project began in November 2014, and is expected to continue through April 2015. Click here to view the project update flyer for more information and contact numbers.
