Lovely place for easy walks in the woods and along the shore. We went with someone who has foot problems and she did well on the flat trails and roads.

Nice park, lots of benches to sit and relax. Like to walk the trails on the north side. There are also south trails that wander by the water.

Great for hiking, families and their fur babies and hiking on trails to the water. When tide is out great rocky beach.

I wanted to get right into the wilderness of Washington and this park was a great first step. Wonderful paths to walk and you quickly escape the city. Very close to Olympia as well! Check it out!

The best place to go and play in the water is Tolmie State Park. Other sand beaches are mostly private.
