Music News

While we're all still safely maintaining social distancing, we want to enjoy the music we usually hear in our free summer concerts. Our virtual series Homemade Serenades from Around Puget Sound  features specially-recorded video performances by some great local musicians. We are grateful to the talented pro and community musicians who are supporting the park and entertaining all of us! 

Our Mission

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 wholeheartedly hope that YOU will join us in creating and sustaining this vital space for generations to come!

Join us

Our weekly work parties are a chance to meet friends and neighbors, spend time outside, and tend to the park. We also have lots of interesting projects from helping with social media and web posts to being on a stage or sound crew for music events. Let us know what you'd like to do! (NOTE: We are cautiously starting work parties again, following social distancing guidelines, not sharing tools, etc. Please contact us for details.)

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.

Park Events & Concerts

Like most Thurston County community organizations and venues, during the Covid-19 emergency we have had to put all our concerts and events on hold. We'll bring the Calendar back when we are able to have our community work parties and other events on a regular basis.
