Des Moines/Normandy Park

GET TO KNOW

Des Moines/Normandy Park

Des Moines is halfway between Tacoma and Seattle, and it has a character all its own. Des Moines has the nickname of “The Waterland City,” since its gentle topography gives residents easy access to the Puget Sound on its western edge. The city operates recreational marina boat launches and a 670-foot fishing pier. Des Moines is also home to the 20-acre Des Moines Beach Park. Here you can explore the stunning views and trails that make it a popular destination.

The City of Normandy Park borders the Puget Sound and is just west of SeaTac International Airport. Normandy Park is a scenic community with ample greenery. One of the most unique features of Normandy Park is The Cove. This is a waterfront green space owned by the 1,800 households in the city, and it is designated as Lot A. Only Lot A residents and their guests have access to The Cove. Amenities here include a clubhouse, tennis courts, trails, a wetland area and more. If your property is not in Lot A, don’t worry; there are plenty of other parks to choose from. The main commuter road, the 50, connects to the 99, making it a straightforward ride into downtown Seattle for commuters. Additionally, light rail access is coming soon as well.
