Dowling Park

Tucked neatly along 9th Street in downtown Olivia is a quaint oasis called Dowling Park.  Donated by Steve Dirks, this tiny gem of a park boasts picnic tables and a beautiful gazebo with Adirondack chairs where you can sit and enjoy the flowers planted and cared for by volunteer gardeners.  The gazebo was donated by a private organization,  Helping Hands of Olivia, through their ongoing paper and cardboard recycling efforts.  On the East wall is a plaque honoring Michael Dowling, the namesake of this park.
