As we plan our music schedule we also need to raise enough money to support the summer season of free concerts in the park. This special fund lets us pay the performers and sound techs who make the music and magic happen every week, for all of us. Love the music? Click on the link to help keep it going.


If you can't toss money in the digital jar, you can donate your time:  reach out and ask how to sign up for stage crew, event assistance, and other staff needed to pull it all together.

Saturday Market at the Park

Planning has started for this year's schedule. Stay tuned for information about the Saturday Market at The Park (back for its second year) events, and concerts.  Musicians and performers are encouraged to send us their info. We also are interested in hosting events put together by other groups.  Sign up for our FB or Instagram page, or our email list, to stay posted.


The WCP team is back outside! Join us every Sunday from 11 to 1 as we work/play together to get the park ready for beautiful things this year.

Right now we are PRUNING and tidying up the landscaping. Come on over to do some good things with good people.

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

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

Our schedule is filling up with lots of exciting music and other events. Check out the schedule here.
