The switchback trail between Heritage Park and the Capitol Campus will be closed Wednesday, October 10. The closure is necessary to prune trees and blackberry bushes that have overgrown the trail, as well as repairing some erosion in the gravel pathway.
The trail will re-open Thursday, October 11 after Enterprise Services completes the annual maintenance.

As we enter the fall season and see less and less daylight, Capitol Security and Visitor Services (CSVS) and the Washington State Patrol (WSP) would like to share a few safety tips for people out walking or jogging on the Capitol Campus, especially in the parks or isolated locations:
Enterprise Services seeks input on what to study in Environmental Impact Statement for the waterbody
OLYMPIA – The first of two meetings where the Department of Enterprise Services will ask people what should be studied in an environmental review for estuary, managed lake and hybrid options for the waterbody on the Capitol Campus will be held Oct. 10.
The purpose of scoping is to determine the range, or “scope” of issues to study, and it is the first step in the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) process.
Enterprise Services seeks input on what to study in Environmental Impact Statement related to long-term management of the waterbody
OLYMPIA – The Department of Enterprise Services invites the public to comment on the scope of an environmental review for Capitol Lake/Lower Deschutes Watershed. The 260-acre waterbody is located on the Washington State Capitol Campus.
OLYMPIA — Tree pruning work will be done near the Winged Victory monument on the Capitol Campus from Sept. 6 through 8.
The Washington State Department of Enterprise Services has contracted with Cascade Tree Experts for the pruning effort, which aims to improve tree health and ensure public safety. The contractor will be working on the Blue Atlas cedar near the northwest corner of the Insurance Building.
OLYMPIA — The Washington State Department of Enterprise Services’ Capitol Security and Visitor Services has issued a permit to The Olympian for its annual Pet Parade. The event is scheduled from 8 a.m. to noon on August 18. It includes a parade that will begin at 10 a.m. at Heritage Park, wind through downtown Olympia and end at Sylvester Park.
Organizers estimate that 1,000 people will attend the event, which could affect traffic and parking in the area.
