Music is Back!

We are excited to bring live music back into the park to showcase local musicians and bring all our neighbors and community out to enjoy being in this great space together.

Thanks to the generosity of the bands who are donating their time we plan to host music nearly every Sunday, and some weekday evenings as well.  Check out the details on our
Music Page.

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!

Join us

Our weekly Sunday work parties are a chance to meet friends and neighbors, spend time outside, and tend to the park. We are following safety guidelines including social distancing, masks, and cleaning our tools. Join us every Sunday from 10 am to 1 pm.

 

We also have lots of interesting projects from helping with social media and web posts to applying for grants and developing new educational programs.

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

We're easing back into live concerts and other events this summer. Take a look at our Music page to get the current lineup of concerts, and stay tuned for other events as we move forward.
