Ruston Way Park
Ruston Way Park is one of many parks located along Ruston Way in the north end of Tacoma, Washington, USA. The area is a popular walking spot, with many joggers taking the route in the morning. Ruston Way Park is the largest of the metropolitan parks along the way, and also the most popular destination for picnicers, especially because of the gentle sea breeze that comes off Commencement Bay. It is located between the Old Tacoma area and the City of Ruston, although it is significantly closer to the former. Previously, exercise stations were available for joggers, but these were removed sometime around 2002 because they were difficult to maintain. Now it is much easier to maintain and adds more to the beauty of nature. Coordinates: 47°17′58.5″N 122°31′23.8″W / 47.299583°N 122.523278°W / 47.299583; -122.523278This Pierce County, Washington

U.S. state
of Washington. As of the 2010 Census, the population was 795,225,[1] making it the second-most populous county in Washington behind King County. The county seat and largest city is Tacoma.[2] Formed out of Thurston County on December 22, 1852, by the legislature of Oregon Territory,[3][4] it was named for U.S. President Franklin Pierce. Pierce County is in the Seattle metropolitan area (formally the Seattle-Tacoma-Bellevue, WA metropolitan statistical area).

There is no imminent risk of eruption, but geologists expect that the volcano will erupt again. If this should happen, parts of Pierce County and the Puyallup Valley would be at risk from lahars, lava, or pyroclastic flows
