Located in the heart of downtown Olympia, Percival Landing is a three-acre waterfront park and popular hub for gatherings and public events. The Landing boasts a nearly one-mile boardwalk, meandering along the eastern shoreline of West Bay with water views, boat moorage and public artwork. The park was named after an old commercial steamship wharf, a well-known maritime landmark in the Pacific Northwest.
The Billy Frank Jr. Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge hugs the southern end of Puget Sound, near Lacey. Established in the 1970s to protect diverse wildlife, the park offers stunning, 360-degree views of Puget Sound, the Olympics, Mount Rainier and several nearby islands. The Nisqually Estuary Boardwalk Trail sits just above the wetlands and tidelands, and hikers can relish over a myriad of bird species, harbor seals, otters, beavers and other animals that call this refuge home.
