Fall Season Here We Come!


Hello Lads and Lassies!

As we head into the fall season, the Park will be turning her head toward harvest and slumber. We can use your help at our weekly Sunday work parties to keep all plants and pathways weed free and tidy for the entire community to enjoy. For four years the WCP Board of Trustees has upheld a strong commitment to clean and organic methods of gardening and landcscaping.That makes for a little more weeding, but we think it’s worth it. It is our intention to leave this little plot of ground in a much nicer condition than when we found it and we’d love your help! Come on out this Sunday from 10-2 to pitch in.

Tuesday is market day! The West Olympia Farmers’ Market sets up at WCP each Tuesday from 4-7 pm to bring you fresh goodies from the farm! Bring your baskets and prepare to fill them leisurely as you stroll the booths listening to the musical artist for the week. Its a fun and satisfying local experience and you can’t miss it.

Upcoming events include:

-All neighborhood sale and auction on September 23rd that will be a fundraiser for Tracy Sorrel a long time resident and activist in this community. His family and friends will be putting on an auction and sale with music more that day from 11-5!

-September 23rd evening, there will be an Equinox Dance Party featuring local favorites the Hinges and High Ceiling! Music starts at 6 ish and will go till 11 or 12, get your dancing shoes on!

-On October 7th ,WCP crew will be hosting our 3rd annual Harvest Fest with cider pressing, stone soup making, veggie swap, permaculture workshops and live music from noon to 4! Come ring in the harvest season wtih friends at WCP!

The Park is available for your event! The West Central Park is available on days with nothing planned, for family and community potlucks, meetings, garage sales and more. Let us know if you’d like to reserve the grounds for your event!

Calling all bocce players! A game is starting to coalesce on the event pad each Sunday afternoon. Starting around 2 pm we will break out the WCP Bocce set and have at it The decomposed granite is flat out perfect for rolling the bocce balls! If we can get enough interest we’ll start a league!!

Thanks West Oly, this Park’s for you!
