Fireman’s Park - Totem Pole

Fireman's Park-Totem Pole


This project stabilized the 110 year old Totem Pole which is located in Fireman's Park at the intersection of South 9th and 'A' Street in Tacoma.  This is a historic structure, and the work was sensitive due to the natural aging of the pole, wet conditions, and past infestations of carpenter ants. Bracing and a steel pole were used to stabilize the Totem Pole.

Project Update

Work on the Totem Pole Stabilization is now complete.
