The trails that go down to the beach are wonderful and even though I have a bit of difficulty getting down there now that I'm disabled - it's worth the short walk down to the water. I've rented the shelters here for parties many times and highly recommend them. They aren't anything fancy, but they work well and if the... More

A quick trip from downtown, Priest Point Park is great to get to the shore and see some beautiful, old trees.

Perfect location for a picnic or an afternoon stroll. Make your way through the wooded trails down to the sound and skip some rocks

Close to town, trails of varying distances, easy beach access, playgrounds, flower gardens and pet friendly. The only downside is theft has been reported here a bit. Don't leave valuables in your car.

This park has a lot to offer and is my go to for a close to town nature get away. It is close enough to town so that even a short visit is pleasant and easy. There is also enough to do to fill an entire day. The nature trails access the Puget Sound shoreline and extend to the northern... More

I remember this park very well from my childhood. It is a great secret near the water. The trails are up and down with steep paths, narrow and can be muddy depending on the time of year. It is worth the trip though to get to the shore and admire the Olympics in the distance.

One of the best parks in Olympia, have picnic areas, hiking trails and lots of beach to explore. My favorite time is the low tide or sunset to get some great pictures, but be prepared to get muddy if you go out on the beach! Bring some extra shoes or your car will be a mess on the way back!

We take our two dogs here to enjoy the hiking trails. The four of us enjoy the adventure of seeing new things and people on the trail whenever we go!

The park has nice trails that go down to a beach where one can explore the Puget Sound shore. The parking area is adequate most days... but sometimes on a sunny weekend it can be busy, especially in the summer. The trails are all clean and ramble through the woods. The open play areas for children and most picnics spots... More
