This westside park is named after Sam Woodruff who was born in China in 1858. He returned to Olympia and made his living as a printer and bookseller. Woodruff was one of our early developers and conveyed the Woodruff Park land to the City of Olympia in 1892 for $1.00.
A new sprayground, upgrades to parking and restroom for ADA accessibility, asphalt pathways, and a picnic shelter were completed in Summer 2019. The City was successful in receiving a $446,380 matching grant from the Washington State Recreation & Conservation Office (RCO) for this project.
Construction will begin in early April 2020 to replace the existing courts with two new tennis courts and four new pickleball courts, as well as new fencing and pathways. This work will be completed by June 2020. This project is funded through our Capital Asset Management Program (CAMP).
