What we're about

Tacoma Dads is a social group for all dads with young children, whether of the stay-at-home, working, or dad-to-be variety.

We’ll be doing events both with our kids (playgrounds, museums, nature walks, etc.) and without our kids (happy hours, sporting events, game nights, whatever). Events will be held at varying times to be as compatible as possible with all sorts of schedules, and will primarily take place in or near Tacoma, WA.

In short, it’s hard to make new friends once you become a dad, so that’s what this group is for.

Morning Park Time - with kids

Tot Lot

A recurring time every two weeks for the stay-at-home dads to meet up while the kids have fun at the park. The Fircrest Tot Lot is completely fenced and gated, with plenty to do for the kids while we hang out. It also includes picnic tables, shade trees, and bathrooms. The play area is suitable for kids up to 7-ish years old despite the name. If the weather is bad, I'll notify everyone who has RSVP'd that we are heading over to Odyssey 1. It's an indoor play space with tons of tubes, ball pits, etc. for the kiddos to enjoy. It's located at 2310 Mildred St W, Tacoma, WA 98466, and admission is $7 for kids. Adults are free.
