The plaza is an urban open space with unique features and amenities in the heart of the East Bay district. The plaza is owned and operated by LOTT, and features a wading stream and a demonstration wetland, both fed by Class A Reclaimed Water. The stream is the first reclaimed water feature in the state officially approved for play. The plaza also features artwork, interpretive elements, benches, restrooms, and a small stage. It is open year-round from dawn to dusk. The splashing stream and restrooms close October 9, 2016 and reopen April 2017.
The public plaza was a result of a working partnership between the City of Olympia, LOTT, Hands On Children's Museum, and the Port of Olympia to provide public benefits and revitalize the East Bay area.
