Jane Cammon Park is 40 acres in size and includes the the Jane Cammon Walking and Bicycle Trail, Anderson Island Elementary School, and the adjoining youth sports complex.
The trail in this park offers a year-round hiking/walking/jogging opportunity as it lacks wet spots and standing water that hikers in other Anderson Island Parks frequently experience. There is also a challenging off-road bicycle course and outdoor education area with seating for small groups.
A trail connects Montalvo Park and the Jane Cammon Trail for extended hiking opportunities. Winding through woods and a lightly wooded glen with salal, huckleberries, and other native bushes, this connecting trail offers the chance to hear and see many woodland birds, including pileated woodpeckers, pacific wrens, song sparrows and more.
Dogs on leashes are permitted on the Jane Cammon Trail and Park. Dogs, except for certified service animals, are not permitted in Montalvo Park and Montalvo Trail as requested by property donor.
The property was donated by Pierce County in 1968.

Second trailhead and parking available from the end of 97th St Ct.
1-mile loop, flat
Portable toilets near school play field and in the 97th Street parking lot
Leashed dogs allowed on trails (Jane Cammon only, NOT connecting trail to Montalvo)
