Love the trails in this place. They can get very steep by the water, so to not shock anyone, you can't be in bad shape (or take it slow). At the top of some of the hills are... read more

Most of my time in Priest Point Park has been spent running - and the trails and roads that go through the park are perfect for that. But it's also just plain beautiful, especially on the water side. It's a somewhat developed park, so don't expect to get lost - but if you want a nearby park that's well-maintained and... More

Great little park, with a rose garden, places to play for kids, and some great trails through the woods and down to the beach. Used for weddings and parties a lot, when the weather is nice.

Very clean, well manicured. Landscaping is beautiful. Has a very relaxing, soothing, and calming affect on you. Bathrooms could have been cleaner. Could have more covered picnic tables. Play area well maintained and lots of fun even for us grandparents going through our 2nd childhood. Be prepared for workout if you deside to walk the trails. Lots of trails to... More

Lots of places to have picnics and cook outs. Nice trails thru the woods and on the beach. Plenty of restrooms and parking. The playground looks nice for the kids. We would go back for sure!

Just to the north of Olympia lies a park on the shores of Budd Inlet that retains the original environment of old growth timber that symbolizes what the area once looked like. Trails and picnic facilities are its main uses but for those seeking a view of the past its beautiful to behold. The cultivated areas are in some dispute... More

Great little park in Olympia. It has both picnic areas to reserve, for big picnics with water and power available or you can just grab a single table, first come first served. Beach access area with just a short walk. Great playground for the kids with a lot of fun playground equipment.
