Park History

Stevens Field was deeded to the Olympia School District on May 27, 1921. In 1963, the Olympia School District began leasing the site for athletic purpose to the City of Olympia. Today it remains an active area for competitive athletics. In 1994, the Olympia School District renovated Lincoln Elementary School, and as a result two fields were eliminated and tennis courts relocated. 

Park Improvements

Thanks to a Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office Youth Athletic Facilities (YAF) grant, Stevens Field #1 received Olympia's first synthetic turf in 2017. Field #1 is also set to have it's 1950's lighting replaced with new LED lighting in early 2019. This project is funded through the Capital Asset Management Program (CAMP).
