Other Regional Recreation

Sumner provides easy access to Mt. Rainier, Puget Sound, Lake Tapps, and lots of recreational opportunities.

Tacoma-South Sound Sports Commission
Tacoma South Sound Sports is a non-profit organization that assists in the development of amateur athletic events in Pierce County. They serve to promote Pierce County as a destination for amateur sporting events to positively drive the economic development, shape the future of sports in the region, and influence the quality of life.

Mt. Rainier
Visit Rainier offers good information about Mt. Rainier National Park and its surrounding area, including options for fishing, hiking, skiing and more.  One great feature is the webcam on Mt. Rainier, so you can check the weather right at the mountain, which may be different than in Sumner.

The County parks offer a wide range of options from the BMX track in Riverbend Park, just south of Sumner, to Chambers Bay Golf Course, home to the 2015 U.S. Open, approximately 20 miles west of Sumner.
