Summer Season at the Park Kicks Off This Weekend!


South Sound Green Tour | West Central Park Project


Happy Friday friends,

The summer season is upon us and we have a busy weekend coming up at the park to kick things off! We’ll be having our regularly scheduled work party from 10am to 2pm on Sunday. And now is a great time to come volunteer because the park is simply gorgeous with all the blooming flowers and buzzing bees this week!

South Sound Green Tour

Tomorrow on Saturday May 19 we will be participating in the South Sound Green tour as a major hub spot for the event! This free event runs between 11am and 5pm in Olympia. It is a self-guided tour that gives the community a chance to experience the best examples of sustainable green living that the South Sound has to offer!

The tour will include green homes, buildings and businesses all staffed with experts to share and educate on the process that has gone into these sustainable properties. For more information about the festivities tomorrow or to download a tour map, please visit the official tour website.
