Nice trails for kids and adult. Beautiful view of downtown Olympia and the capitol. It's just a great place to spend the day outdoor.

Went for a quick hike/jog through the park this evening. Being from Northern Minnesota, it was great to submerse myself in nature. Was easy to feel "in the woods" when being so close to town. Would highly recommend to people. The paved trails were convenient, especially for young and old.

Love the trails in this place. They can get very steep by the water, so to not shock anyone, you can't be in bad shape (or take it slow). At the top of some of the hills are beautiful views of Swan town. You can even to get a a beach. Just walking the trails are amazing. I will warn... More

It's a somewhat developed park, so don't expect to get lost - but if you want a nearby park that's well-maintained and... More

Great little park, with a rose garden, places to play for kids, and some great trails through the woods and down to the beach. Used for weddings and parties a lot, when the weather is nice.

Very clean, well manicured. Landscaping is beautiful. Has a very relaxing, soothing, and calming affect on you. Bathrooms could have been cleaner. Could have more covered picnic tables. Play area well maintained and lots of fun even for us grandparents going through our 2nd childhood. Be prepared for workout if you deside to walk the trails. Lots of trails to... More
