No trip to Oly is complete without it

Choose a clear day, best spot to take a stroll. Make it a bit longer walk and wrap around Capital lake.

On a clear day, it's a great walk along the water, with a view of snowy mountains, kayakers, and the Capitol. Keep an eye out for seals and otters. Climb the wooden observation deck for a great view.

The park has a nice open grass area for ultimate or just running around with kids. You can walk down towards the farmers market and see the boats as they come into... More

This area is nicely cleaned up and landscaped with lots of activity for adults and children. We enjoy the summer events held in this area because it's a nice size space so you don't feel crowded.

If you like walking along the water this is the place to go, we love to walk from the market all along the boardwalk and back. Fun to people watch as well and fun to check out the anchored boats.

Percival landing is the best place in Olympia for locals and visitors experience the best of downtown. There's great scenery, the harbor, the Olympic Mountains, the Capital, and Budd Bay are all within view. It's close to restaurants, the Farmers Market, coffee shops, and stores.

Park your car down town near the Olympia Oyster house and enjoy a jaunt down the boardwalk by Marinas, open air art, seaside play area for children, historical plaques, restaurants, and a gathering area for events. Climb the wood viewing tower to see the working part of our wharf where ocean going cargo ships dock & load. One can enjoy... More

Absolutely beautiful walk along the boardwalk which surrounds Budd Bay, they farthest reach Puget Sound reaches South. This lovely marina area is landscaped, and enjoyed by the whole community as well as all the boaters frequenting the marina. Childrens' play area is first class, and the restaurants abound along the boardwalk. Perfect for couples, families and especially dogs!!

Go an walk the boardwalk in Percival Landing. There are shops all around and the State Capital can be seen from the South end of the park. Plenty to do and see. Give it a go. A great spray fountain across the street for kids to play.
