Stan and Joan Cross Park is the first of its kind in the Frederickson, Washington. Pierce County Parks turned two 1930s-era barns into a beautiful new community center. Next door to the center is a playground that features synthetic turf and a custom wood playground. A sandpit is fitted with interactive activities like a water table and drums.

On the other side of the park is the Naches Trail Preserve, which features a walking trail for families.


180 tons of CSTC
100 tons of Washed Utility Sand
90 tons of C-144 Fine Sand
20 tons of CSBC

Washington Rock Quarries provided sand for structure as well as for the sandpit. We also provided a combined 200 tons of crushed surfacing materials for the parking lot, playground, and buildings.

Pierce County Parks was recognized by the American Public Works Association Washington State Chapter for the preservation work completed at the Frederickson Community Center at Cross Park. Check out the Pierce County Parks page about Cross Park. The County also created a video about this project.
