City of Puyallup


Outdoor concerts and movies, and more!

Outdoor concerts, outdoor movies, and a mid-summer carnival: All these things are in store for you this month, courtesy of your Puyallup Parks & Recreation Department! You’ll want to get all of these great events on your calendar so you don’t miss out.

The Family Series at Pioneer Park is held at 6:30 every Thursday evening. There’s something for everyone over the course of the series: acoustic rock, a capella, classic rock, and even “twisted country.” Concessions are available; lawn chairs or blankets are welcome.

Noon Tunes at Pioneer Park start July 14th with Tim Noah, and the Family Series at Bradley Lake Park starts Wednesday, July 29th.

Friday, July 10th will offer the first Outdoor Cinema Series movie of the summer—Space Jam! Movies are free and begin at dusk at Bradley Lake Park. Concessions will be available for purchase; lawn chairs or blankets are welcome. The second July movie—An American Tail: Fievel Goes West--will be on the 24th.

On Wednesday, July 22nd, head out to the Mid-Summer Carnival at Pioneer Park. From 1 to 4 p.m. there will be games, prizes, face painting, crafts, cotton candy, and more! Tickets are $0.25 each and all carnival booths range between one and four tickets.

Call the Recreation Center for more information at 253-841-5457.

As we head into another few days of elevated temperatures, folks are encouraged to avoid the sun as much as possible, stay hydrated, and check on elderly neighbors. Take special care to not leave children or pets unattended in cars as the interior temperature can quickly become deadly. Finally, take full advantage of cooler air in public buildings such as local libraries, malls and movie theaters. For more information on how to avoid heat-related illnesses visit the Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department.

From July 30th to August 3rd, numerous streets around the city will receive important maintenance treatment in the form of chip sealing. Chip sealing is a relatively inexpensive way to extend the life of a road for 10 to 12 years. Want to know more? Here's a list of streets and the planned schedule.

WSDOT will close the Puyallup River bridge at SR-167 from 8 pm Friday, August 7th through 5 am Monday, August 10th to accommodate the relocation of the steel truss bridge. A public viewing area will be established near Fred Meyer. More information including detour routes is available here

This summer, South Meridian will be getting new pavement and markings, upgraded pedestrian signals and access ramps, and improved traffic signal timing operations. At times, construction will necessitate reducing traffic to one lane in each direction between 15th and 31st Avenues SE; detour routes will be offered. Early morning and nighttime work will start on August 2nd.

Gather your neighbors on August 4th for this year's National Night Out! Now's the time to plan your block party, cookout, parade or ice cream social. Neighborhoods wishing to participate and enjoy a visit from their Police and Fire departments are encouraged to register their get-together.

The City of Puyallup is celebrating a special birthday this year--its 125th! The celebration kicked off with the planting of a commemorative heritage tree in Bradley Lake Park on Arbor Day. Other events and festivities will continue in the following months, leading up to the main event on August 19th.

The City invites proposals from qualified firms to provide services for negotiating collective bargaining agreements. Proposals are due no later than 4:00 p.m. on Monday, August 24th.
