Good morning park pals,

It’s another cozy November morning in Olympia! We’ll be hosting our regularly scheduled work party on Sunday from 11am to 1pm. This week we’re focusing on taking down the stage to store it away for the winter season as well as general park maintenance and upkeep.

The space created by the neighborhood, for the neighborhood, to be a model for other neighborhoods to create similar spaces and thereby improve their economy and their quality of life.
