Park History

Many Olympians might not realize that LBA is an abbreviation for Little Baseball Association. The Little Baseball Association is Olympia's counterpart to youth Little League. In 1974, the park was developed in a cooperative arrangement with the City of Olympia and LBA. The Little Baseball Association donated the land and the City built the facilities. This arrangement continues today as LBA is given priority for field scheduling for their activities and programs. In 2017, the City of Olympia expanded the park through the purchase of the neighboring LBA Woods property.

Park Improvements

Park staff are currently finalizing plans for ADA access upgrades at LBA Park. Construction should begin in Fall 2019, after the baseball/softball season is complete. Improvements will including replacing the existing stairway up to Field 3 with an ADA compliant ramp, as well as additional improvements at Fields 1-4.
