Help shape the future of Olympia Parks, Arts & Recreation!

Planning for Olympia’s 2022-2028 Parks, Arts and Recreation Plan is underway and we need your input! This plan helps to guide our decision making across all areas of our department, so your voice is important.

This community-driven update will include, public surveys and feedback, strategies for prioritizing improvements, and will incorporate goals grounded in equity and inclusion.

For a little context as you begin your engagement in the process, our department is responsible for:

  • Stewarding 1,357 acres comprised of 49 parks with 23 miles of trails, 4.5 miles of shoreline, 8 picnic shelters, 12 athletic fields, the Percival Landing boardwalk, and 134 Community Garden Plots.
  • Offering environmental education and volunteer programs for youth and adults.
  • Hosting over 10,000 participants in our recreation programs, classes, day camps, and sports leagues and more than 20,000 skaters at our seasonal ice rink each year.
  • Serving 8,000 meals to kids through the summer nutrition program.
  • Implementing a public art program including the Percival Plinth sculpture display on Percival Landing, the Traffic Box Wrap project, and Arts Walk, which has 24,000 annual visitors celebrating the arts in downtown Olympia.
