1. Allan Yorke Park
Amazing Allan Yorke Park, located at the south end of Lake Tapps, is worth a visit even without the two gnome home doors to find. Perks include picnic areas, sport courts, a skate park, playground area, snack shack and a grassy meadow for playing. Across the street, you can swim in Lake Tapps and rent kayaks and paddle boards. Bookmark this spot for a future visit when you could easily spend a whole day!
Gnome hint: Speaking of picnics, look for the first gnome home door around the picnic areas near the main entrance. The second gnome door is hidden across the street near the parking lot with the sign Ballfield #4, off of Bonney Lake Boulevard E. Rumor has it that you can also spot an eagle’s nest in this area.
Find it: 7203 W. Tapps Hwy E., Bonney Lake
