The Olympia Fellowship of Reconciliation’s April 2015 TV program explores the need for local parks. We focus on a timely opportunity to devote a large amount of addi-tional land to become a park that would serve the greater Thurston County area.
A community group formed a few years ago and has generated wide support throughout our community for a 150-acre “LBA Woods Park” next to the current “LBA Park” in SE Olympia, within the city limits. This non-profit organization, the LBA Woods Park Coalition (www.lbawoodspark.org), has been urging the City of Olympia to buy the available land now so it can become a park.
Three guests help us explore this topic:
• Bonnie Jacobs is a longtime Olympia organizer for many efforts to improve our local quality of life.
• Brian Faller is an attorney with special expertise regarding recreation areas.
• Kris Norelius is an elementary school counselor who appreciates young people gaining access to experience the natural world.
