Port Plaza Park, Olympia

4.3
From the commercial center at NewMarket Industrial Campus and the diversified specialty Marine Terminal to the vibrant Swantown Marina and Boatworks and the strategically located Olympia Regional Airport, the Port of Olympia is committed to fostering economic growth of the South Puget Sound region and serving the needs of global customers.

Essentially one business with four divisions, the Port promotes economic development through its business operations and economic development tools, such as its four-county foreign-trade zone. Land and infrastructure improvements are provided to encourage business development, and some areas, such as the Port Plaza, are earmarked for recreation and public access.

Since its foundation in 1922, the Port of Olympia has served as an economic catalyst for the Thurston County Port District. It is a municipal corporation, governed by three elected commissioners who set policies and objectives. A community port, it is committed to helping area residents enjoy a special quality of life by promoting a healthy economy and a healthy environment.

  • I had a lot of lunch and wandered around the park for a walk. It's quiet, peaceful, with lots of yachts and good weather, perfect for a walk. There is also a toilet and shower in the park, which seemed to be just for the yacht marina.

  • I was there for Olympia Harbor days, which is always fun. A lot of vendors, boats you can tour and food to eat. When nothing is going on, its still a nice place to take a walk, theres a playground along the way for the kids and food along the way too. It's a nice play to take in some of Olympia.
  • Lots of festivals in the summertime. Beautiful area. Parking can be challenging which is why I gave 4 out of 5 stars.
