Great place to take a walk along the waterfront downtown--especially after a visit to the farmer's market or after grabbing a bite to eat at nearby cafes. Not too crowded especially during the week. Fun to look at the boats in the harbor!

Found this place by accident while exploring Olympia - what a lovely place for a relaxing stroll along the waterfront. Very scenic - restaurants within walking distance, smells of the sea - just a relaxing place to stroll and watch the boats go in and out of port.

A scenic walk in January with some friends! A nice way to burn off a few calories after a long lunch. Enjoyed watching the boats in the marina rise and fall with the waves of Budd Bay, and the bundled-up locals walking their dogs, some with doggie sweaters on. Sculptures along the way kept things interesting. A wide variety of... More

Walked through this charming piece of Olympia during an impromptu stop en route to Seattle. Olympia's downtown and waterfront area is so beautiful and charming. We were pleasantly surprised. Be sure to stop at this small park along the waterfront to get a good view of the marina.

Percival Landing is a great anytime walk along the Olympia waterfront. From the interactive fountain at the south end to the port on the north, the walk offers variety and beauty. Recommended places along the walk include Childhood's End gallery, the Kiss, view of the Olympic Mountains, a large kid's play area, the tower observation deck and the Farmer's Market.... More

This is a wonderful place to walk off your meal, or just get some fresh air, a little exercise, and some stunning views. Views of the water, docks, and Viewing Tower to see the harbor, and the Olympic Mountains on a clear day!

Lovely walk along the waterfront. Not crowded and always clean. If you like to climb the stairs there is a lookout tower that gives you a very nice view of the area and the boats in the Marina. There is a play area for children and they all love it. Parking can be a problem at times but you can... More

I was visiting Olympia for a couple of days and came upon here. It was actually quite the beautiful walk on a sunny day. I can see why the locals love this place so much.

Percival Landing and environs is a welcoming spot in downtown Oly. There is a nice multi-age playground at the southern end. The boardwalk is wide enough for two way pedestrian traffic as well as bikers & rollerbladers. There are a couple of Native American style mini pavilions for protection during very sunny times. The view to the west is the... More
