Park History

In 1946 the Olympia Lions Service Club and Eastside Neighborhood Association joined hands to show their community pride. This strong alliance of neighborhood and City interests has continued through the years. Today the park is well used by residents of the Eastside Neighborhood and other residents of the City.

Park Improvements

In 2010, a new playground was constructed at the park.  Additional improvements were completed in 2012 which include a new picnic shelter, new roof over the existing restroom building, accessible parking space, new light poles and a paved accessible trail around the playground.  

Find the Lions Game

There are 11 lions hidden throughout the park, varying in size and shape.  Look high and low to see if you can find them all. (Hint:  The lions on the sign are not part of the 11.)  Answer Key
