Draft Parks, Arts & Recreation Plan available for review

This Plan serves as a guide for the phased development and enhancement of Olympia’s park system. It takes inventory of the current park system, recreation facilities and art program plans and charts a course for the next six years. In addition to a capital investment strategy, the Plan includes new goals for increasing equity, inclusion and belonging in our parks and services, and commits the Department to pursuing climate mitigation and adaptation efforts.

Please review the Draft Plan and let us know what you think! You can send your comments in an email to Laura Keehan at lkeehan@ci.olympia.wa.us or use the online comment form at the survey tab below. The survey will close Sept. 27, 2021.

Want more background about why we’re updating this Plan? Watch this short video from Olympia’s Parks Director, Paul Simmons.
