Thurston County Upcoming Parks Projects
Improvements to Local Parks
The City of Olympia, Parks, Arts and Recreation department will be making improvements to several local area parks over the coming weeks. You may see construction activity but impacts are expected to be minimal with all parks facilities remaining open for use.
Kettle View Park New Shelter
A new 16ft X 21ft covered shelter will be built next to the existing restroom. Construction will begin late this week and is anticipated to be complete by the end of July. All park facilities will be open during the construction. The shelter site will be fenced off.
Priest Point Park Flora Vista Parking Lot Expansion
The existing parking lot will be expanded, adding 5 parking stalls, one of which will be an ADA stall. The expanded portion will be asphalt, as will the parking lot entrance. This work will be complete in the month of June. The parking lot and park entrance will remain open during construction but may have short term closures to accommodate specific work tasks such as the asphalt application work.
LBA Park Asphalt Overlay
Asphalt overlay work will include the northern portion of the existing southern parking lot off of Amhurst St. SE as well as the pathway from the playground up to the restrooms. The project will include stump and root removal and some asphalt base preparation. The project will be complete in the month of June. The entire park will remain open with minor closure areas.
