This park is so awesome, nestled into the moss covered forests right outside of downtown Olympia. It is very enjoyable and so many directions from which to explore within the park.

Such a peaceful place to walk, run, or camp (among other things I suppose). Trails aren't too long and kept in good condition to walk without major issue. Would recommend if you're wanting to see the Port of Olympia, great place to go!
