ROTARY POINT AT WEST BAY PARK
 
Rotary Point at West Bay Park in Olympia, Washington, is the culmination of a unique partnership between the City of Olympia and the Rotary Clubs of Thurston County.
   
   
 
The 4 acre park is located on the western shore of one of the southernmost points of the Puget Sound and is a spectacular site that provides outstanding views of the State Capitol, ship canal and Olympic peaks. 
 
A Washington Wildlife and Recreation Program Water Access Grant and an Aquatic Lands Enhancement Grant helped to fund acquisition, development, and shoreline enhancement.
 
A partnership with local Rotary Clubs resulted in a developed overlook, a handheld boat launch and other improvements.
 
Here is a list of the eight Rotary Clubs in Thurston County that partnered in the creation of Rotary Point at West Bay Park:
  • The Rotary Club of Olympia
  • Capital Centennial Rotary Club of Olympia
  • The Rotary Club of West Olympia
  • The Rotary Club of South Puget Sound-Olympia
  • The Rotary Club of Yelm
  • The Rotary Club of Lacey
  • Tumwater Rotary Club
  • The Gateway Rotary Club
 
ADDRESS:
700 W. Bay Dr. NW
Olympia, WA 9502
 
HOURS:
