Yelm Highway Community Park Master Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

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.

We are developing 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.

Concept plans now available - Tell us what you think!

Using the information gathered from our first community meeting and online survey (over 600 participants), the design team developed three conceptual layouts for the future community park. You can now view the concept plans and take the online survey below to share your thoughts. The survey will close March 22.
