“Wonderfully Maintained Park!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014

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 of the Park is a great spot for picnics, reading, hiking or studying plant life. The little bridge over East Bay Drive is a fun way to get from one side to the other plus there is a pretty nice playground for families with children of all ages. Picnic tables are on both sides of East Bay, most with covers. It's a nice way to spend a day.

“Best Wedding Venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2014

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.

“Great walk, excellent play structure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2013

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.

“Beautiful Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

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 have that capacity. And if hiking alone, I would exercise reasonable caution, as again, the trails can be quite isolated. During the fall and winter, worth taking a hiking stick to navigate slicker parts of the trail.
