Yelm Highway Community Park Master Plan

What's Happening?

In 2018, the City of Olympia purchased the property at 3323 Yelm Highway for a future community park. Approximately 60 percent of the property currently consists of fields used for strawberry production. A berry stand and gravel parking area are located at the north end of the property along Yelm Highway. Much of the southern half of the property is wooded.

The City is beginning a master planning process to develop a design concept to guide future park development in a phased approach. The master plan will incorporate active and passive recreational amenities, preservation and protection of critical areas, and integration of public art into the design.

In order to meet a longstanding community need for dedicated rectangular fields in Olympia, this park will likely include rectangular fields in the first phase.
