The Tacoma Chinese Reconciliation Park is a special project undertaken by the City of Tacoma, in close collaboration with the Chinese Reconciliation Project Foundation.
The Tacoma Chinese Reconciliation Park (1741 N. Schuster Parkway, Tacoma, WA 98403) is located on the beautiful Ruston Way waterfront. The master site plan was first developed in 2001. Total project cost is estimated at $20 million (2011 dollars) and is currently funded at approximately $10 million (see the Fact Sheet posted below). Construction broke ground in 2005. By 2011, Phases I and II were substantially completed. Phases III and IV are ready for implementation, pending funding availability.

The Story of the Fuzhou Ting In June 2006 Deputy
Mayor Mike Lonergan, Councilmember Bill Evans,
Chinese Reconciliation Project and staff from the World Trade Center, port of Tacoma, and the City of Tacoma met with Senior Vice Mayor Liang Jianyong of Fuzhou, China and discussed the Chinese waterfront park project. The Vice Mayor visited the site and subsequently made a generous 0ffer to donate a Ting for the site. The 30 foot by 40 foot pavilion is valued at $250,000 to $300,000. In September 2010, three master craftsmen and an interpreter from Fuzhou, China traveled to Tacoma to direct and participate in the construction of the ting. All of the materials had been shipped earlier in the summer from Fuzhou. The Fuzhou Ting is the first building in the park, and was completed in 2011. Read more the contruction and see photos...
