Percival Landing is a great anytime walk along the Olympia waterfront. From the interactive fountain at the south end to the port on the north, the walk offers variety and beauty. Recommended places along the walk include Childhood's End gallery, the Kiss, view of the Olympic Mountains, a large kid's play area, the tower observation deck and the Farmer's Market.... More

This is a wonderful place to walk off your meal, or just get some fresh air, a little exercise, and some stunning views. Views of the water, docks, and Viewing Tower to see the harbor, and the Olympic Mountains on a clear day!

Lovely walk along the waterfront. Not crowded and always clean. If you like to climb the stairs there is a lookout tower that gives you a very nice view of the area and the boats in the Marina. There is a play area for children and they all love it. Parking can be a problem at times but you can... More

I was visiting Olympia for a couple of days and came upon here. It was actually quite the beautiful walk on a sunny day. I can see why the locals love this place so much.

Percival Landing and environs is a welcoming spot in downtown Oly. There is a nice multi-age playground at the southern end. The boardwalk is wide enough for two way pedestrian traffic as well as bikers & rollerbladers. There are a couple of Native American style mini pavilions for protection during very sunny times. The view to the west is the... More

Olympia is great for walking and the Percival Landing walkway is a delight. The good folks in Olympia were really thinking ahead when they built this. The boardwalk is right on the shoreline and provides great views of the bay and a working port. From fourth street in downtown, the path can be followed to the farmer's market which should... More

I really love taking this walk whenever we have visitors in town to show them the waterfront. The art sculptures placed along the walk is a really nice touch. Great restaurants with patio views along the way. Nice place to watch the sunset.

This is a great place to stroll on a sunny day and certainly to bring out of town guests, as it's right on the water at the commercial harbor and entrance to Capitol Lake. The planners put in a lot of clever work, making a public space that's useful for families and groups; we see kids playing, churches meeting, families... More

The boardwalk was nice. The views were good. At the end of the boardwalk was a nice little Farmer's Market selling flowers, local honey and jams and other craft items. A few decent restaurants. This is within walking distance of some cute little shops as well. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this little place, however our four teenage daughters... More
