The city has remained quite popular due to its:

  • COMMUNITY AMENITIES: Lake Olympia’s many lakes (over 100 acres) play host to a variety of wildlife. The area is also lined with walking/jogging trails and fountains. Swimming pools with wading areas and lighted tennis courts are also available for residents.
  • MARINA CLUBHOUSE: Located just off Lake Olympia Parkway, the clubhouse features a party room, a kitchen, porch, and deck. Residents can rent the clubhouse for events and meetings.

  • ACTIVE HOA: The community has a very active HOA, the Lake Olympia Civic Association. The association enforces the community’s deed restrictions and covenants as well as organizes events for its residents.
