Titlow Beach is in Tacoma, Washington, USA. It is located along Puget
Sound near the Tacoma Narrows Bridge. It has a beach, community
center, park, water play area (all of which are run by Metro Parks
Tacoma), two restaurants., a view of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge,
a small boardwalk, and is a popular scuba diving area.
Local lawyer Aaron R. Titlow purchased the property in 1903 and built
the Hotel Hesperides, a resort hotel that lasted until 1923. In
1926, the hotel was acquired by the park district. During the 1930s,
it was remodeled during a WPA project. In 1963, octopus wrestling
championships were held at the beach. The lodge served as the home
of the assistant superintendent for parks and then the caretaker for
the park until 1990. It was remodeled in 2011, and the pool was
replaced in 2013 with a water play area.
