Perfect day in Olympia if you love the outdoors. It was a little difficult to find the correct trail heads because lack of signs, but beautiful hike once we found it. I could have stayed all day.

We drove out to this site hoping for a beach walk. Path was hard to find. Park was sort of run down. No beach to walk on.

This park is well placed on the Puget Sound. The walking trails are plentiful and the park is very well kept. I first thought this might be a State Park because of it's size . . but, it was developed and is maintained by the City of Olympia. A great place to spend your morning, take a walk or run... More

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.
