  • THe Tumwater Falls Park is where we always take out of town guests. It is the site of the old Olympia Brewery with the iconic waterfall that was on each can of Olympia beer. There is also a salmon hat...  more »
  • Beautiful trail, with large and small water falls along the way. I saw several families taking pictures. Some pre-made places to pose for pictures. 
  • We own a small dog and this was a great leg stretcher for us and for the pup. The falls are beautiful and the grounds are well kept.

  • Several waterfalls on a secluded area of the Deschutes River that has lots of free parking and is near the I-5 expressway. There is a native plant garden that is well maintained and labelled. Interpretive signs along the paths give information related to the natural history, salmon migration, early settlers and Olympia beer manufacturing previously nearby. Salmon migrate into the falls in late August to early October and spawn near the Falls. There is a fish hatchery station located at the top of the falls with an easily accessible viewing area. You can walk over grate covered fish ladders (artificially made access for salmon to progress up stream) and view the salmon as they progress upstream. There are restrooms and picnic areas at the top of the falls next to one of the parking lots.
  • I think many people are unaware just how nice this park is, especially when you see it right next to I-5 on the map. It's isolated from any kind of traffic noise except for a small two-lane side-street bridge that goes over part of the trail down the river. Perfect place for quick walks and big family or small couples picnics. There is a great trail, picnic tables overlooking waterfalls, some playground toys for kids, and a big open field.
  • This place is a beautiful place to walk around. My kids played in some water, by a small waterfall and loved the garden. There is a free parking lot. Places for kids to play. A fish hatchery. Huge waterfalls! Don't leave the trail and they close up the gate at closing time so people have to get out on time.
  • Great place for a city hike if you live around this area or want to take a break from driving on I-5 during a road trip. The amazing natural beauty keeps giving and giving. Every angle of sight in the park is picturesque if you have a knack for nature photography.
  • Really a great park. Cool and pretty sights. Downsides are people not picking up dog turds, and the staff are cold... Occasional tweakers.
