Gorgeous Old Growth trees, peacocks, trails to the bay, swings that go high in the sky......nature at its best. Picnic tables, good family place. Everyone needs a park like this.

This little park was introduced to us by a local friend. The park can be accessed off of Eastside Road. It is forested and has areas for various activities, including a wedding reception on this day with guests dancing on a pad.

Priest Point Park has a bit of everything. It has beaches, woods, picnic areas, trails, group areas, and it is free. The park has been here for decades and it is a great place to get away, for a half hour or all day.

Having lived in Olympia for 60 of my 62 years and within a scant mile of Priest Point Park, this is one of my most favorite parts of the City. It is a diverse park, having a long beach area on the west to explore, there is a creek running into the bay on the north side, the east side... More

I was marred in the rose garden. It was very well maintained, clean and intimate. I couldn't have asked for a better place. The reservation was easily made and very inexpensive.

This is a great park. There is a great play structure of a boat. There is a rose garden, an excellent trail system through the park that goes down to the water. The water is a bit muddy, but you occasionally see something of interest.

Have visited Priest Point to hike, to geocache, and to picnic. Lots of lush, wonderful trails. Also some really cool geocaches if you enjoy geocaching. The park is larger than you might imagine, and while in general the trails are pretty well marked, it doesn't hurt to set a marker on your phone to refind the parking lot if you... More

The park had a lot more to offer before the bridge to the other side washed out. Now it's lacking. Still a couple cool caves but not for young kids.

A nice park and a great place to walk or have a picnic. We visited on a Friday just to see what it was like and the trees combined with the trails made for a very nice afternoon out. Bring a picnic basket and give it a try.
