Squaxin Park is a public park located in Olympia, Washington. Established in 1905, it was the city's first waterfront park, providing access to the Budd Inlet of Puget Sound. The park was formerly known as Priest Point Park, but was renamed in 2022 after the Olympia City Council unanimously voted to change it to honor the local Squaxin island Tribe.

  • My review is about the playground not the park, although the beach smelled and had dirty foamy water in many places. The area near the playground lead directly down a hill right into busy traffic...

  • I have never had a bad experience here at this park. The views are gorgeus. The trails are nice and improved.

  • Free city park! Phenomenal. Lots of short trails, beach access points, and even parking. Went on a foggy Saturday morning and had much of the trail to myself. It was a wonderful intro to PNW outdoors.
  • There's always something happening at the pavilion but it never feels as crowded as it is since there's plenty of paths to walk. The playground is decent sized and even has a swing for special needs children. This is a favorite for the whole family as it gets everyone outdoors, beach walks for pups and play structures to help the kids unwind too. There's a couple kitchen pavilions and tons of picnic tables so as the weather warms maybe we'll leverage those as well on our outings.
