West Central Park
An open, beautiful nonprofit gathering space and garden in West Olympia supporting a resilient, connected community
at the Park
Our free concert season continues into September. See the events calendar posted here for updates. And don't forget to put our Luminary Celebration on 9/10 on your calendar.
The Saturday Market at the Park, a labor of love and energy by a nonprofit group of local community members, has brightened up every summer weekend. The Market offers produce and other items from selected local famers and artisans, set to music from a variety of local artists. It runs into October, and now is a great time to check out the treasures there.
On Saturday, September 10th our 3rd Luminary Celebration brings together the gorgeous, whimsical Procession luminaries and the energetic happiness of the Artesian Rumble Archestra in an end-of-summer celebration of light and community. We will start gathering at 7:30 pm and kick off at 8:00 pm with a short procession around the park block, returning to the event area for dancing and luminary-gazing! Bring your own safe wearable or carry-able lighted creations and celebrate with us.
The West Central Park Project is committed to maintaining a walkable neighborhood and a resilient, connected community. We believe that having a beautiful space for the neighborhood to enjoy will enhance both the community and the economy surrounding it. And we hope that YOU will join us in creating and sustaining this vital space for generations to come!
How to Grow A Park
Growing a Park
The corner of Harrison Avenue and Division Street is one of the central intersections of West Olympia. It sat untouched for many years after old Rowland Lumber Company building was torn down in 1997.
Our original vision for this project was to build a lush pedestrian park that would allow for a creative and beneficial use of this vital corner. And thanks to the support from our local community, that vision has become a reality.
