Olympic View Park Development

Category Overview

Local Parks grants help protect these symbols of vibrant communities, providing places for families to gather and play and promoting a healthy and active lifestyle in an era when people spend increasing amounts of their time inside. The WWRP is the largest source of local parks funding in Washington, helping communities fund the acquisition, development, and renovation of vital recreation areas and green spaces.

Project Highlights

The Olympic View Park project was designed and bid to transform approximately three acres of City-owned vacant property into a neighborhood park, with a key connection to the existing Ebey Waterfront Trail and the Qwuloolt Estuary The project constructed an asphalt parking lot with hammerhead turnaround to provide off-street parking, a Romtec restroom with security lighting, a Poligon picnic shelter, multiple concrete plazas with viewpoints, a play area with embankment slide, an Imbarimba and tuned drums, a bike rack, multiple park benches, multiple trash receptacles, fencing, wetland signage, landscaping, interpretive signage and a new ADA compliant trail access to the aforementioned Ebey Waterfront Trail and Qwuloolt Estuary. Due to the slopes of the property, the park also required the construction of several unit block retaining walls. The project also constructed an asphalt entry drive and sidewalk within the 59th Ave right-of-way, stormwater management facilities and sewer, water and electrical extensions.
