Our free concert season has been wonderful! We're done for the year, but may have pop-up events when possible. Sign up for our FB or Instagram page, or our email list, to stay posted -- and check out the events calendar posted here for updates. 

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 will run until the end of October, and now is a great time to check out the treasures there.


Sunday 10/16/22 - Due to the smoke, the air quality indicator shows UNHEALTHY conditions. We will not be having our work party in the park today. Hope to see you all next Sunday, 11 to 1.

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.
