Budd Bay comes right up to the street at this area. Nice boardwalk area with several restaurants, playground, and public restrooms. Also Farmer's Market is close by. Moorage is available at several docks, some with power and some without. It is first come, first served.

On a beautiful day, this is a great place to visit and explore. The view of the water is worth it and makes the visit enjoyable. Not much to do, but a very relaxing environment.

Yes. Olympia does have a leash law, so your dog should be on a leash.
