Lake Bradley real estate is a beautiful, but lesser known, market for lake homes and land in Washington.
Lake Bradley is a unique, 16-acre body of water in Pierce County, Washington. It sits between Mt. Rainier National Park's craggy hills and the rolling waters of the Puget Sound inlet. Bradley Lake is surrounded by Bradley Lake Park, which is kept by the City of Puyallup.
Residents of Bradley Lake can reach the city of Tacoma in under 30 minutes by car.
Lake Bradley is open year-round only for juvenile anglers, senior anglers, and anglers with a disability who only possess a designated harvester companion card. According to the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife, this change was implemented as part of a three-year effort to simplify sportfishing regulations across the state. The park is available for everyone's use.
This lake is stocked annually with hatchery rainbow trout and supports naturally reproducing largemouth bass, black crappie, yellow perch, and brown bullhead catfish.
Bradley Lake Park covers 59-acres of land in the center of the city of Puyallup. The park has baseball/softball fields, fishing, grassy areas, public parking, picnic areas, restrooms, trails, and a walking track.
Mt. Rainier National Park surrounds the lake a few miles to the east and south. Inside the park, you can have fun camping, hiking, climbing, and exploring Mt. Rainier-- the 14,410-foot active volcano.
Tacoma has a plethora of unique entertainment and attractions to explore.
The Point Defiance Park is perfect for those who love to take a stroll in the park. This 700-acre scenic park features miles of woodland trails, gardens, and waterfront views. You can even stop by the on-site Zoo and Aquarium.
Tacoma is a big fan of glass! Visit the Chihuly Bridge of Glass, which leads to the Museum of Glass. This museum describes itself as an international center for contemporary art with a sustained focus on glass.
You can also zoom on over to the LeMay--America's Car Museum. This four-level, 165,000-sq.-ft. the facility features 12 rotating exhibits for car enthusiasts to enjoy.
