MPD Claims for Damages

When to file a claim

A claim may be filed against the Olympia Metropolitan Park District (MPD) when an incident occurs and an involved party believes the MBD has been negligent in performing its duties.

In order for a municipality to be liable for any damages or injuries, the MPD must have knowledge (or should have had knowledge) that a hazardous situation exists. Further, it must know a hazardous situation exists and not do anything to correct the situation in a timely fashion.
