During the period between park acquisition and development, the City implements Interim Use and Management Plans for undeveloped parks. Typical improvements include unirrigated play meadows, swings, trails and picnic tables.
The Olympia Woodland Trail Feasibility Study was completed in December 1998.
The Olympia Woodland Trail Master Plan was completed July 20, 1999.
Priest Point Park Major Maintenance Plan
In July 2008, the Olympia Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee, the Olympia City Council and the Olympia Parks, Arts & Recreation Director, Linda Oestreich, approved the 2008-2015 Priest Point Park Major Maintenance Plan. The plan includes a list of major maintenance projects to be performed, the target year and cost estimate.
The Plan was prepared as part of the new Condition Assessment and Major Maintenance Program (CAMMP) for Olympia Parks. Condition assessments for all park facilities were conducted in 2008. Projects will be scheduled and funded through the Capital Facilities Program (CFP). Currently, CAMMP is funded at $500,000 annually with $50,000 of that designated for Priest Point Park.
