Yuma has some very nice parks that follow the Colorado River. They are all connected and you can walk for miles. I saw very little litter, graffiti, and most of the people seemed normal enough. Lots of families out enjoying the sunshine.

If you are in Yuma it is worth a stop. Lots of old buildings to explore. Well layer out grounds. If you go to their website "Yuma Quartermaster state historical park" it will show you a map. Self guided tour. Friendly & helpful staff. The building also houses a large travel centre where you can find magazines & leaflets all... More

Imagine yourself in the past, a new land, no dams on the Colorado River, spring flooding, unbearable summer heat. The exhibits are interesting but lacking in depth, still well worth a visit.

Interesting piece of history. Like others said, nothing earth shattering... but there is quite a bit of neat history here. Also learned here that Yuma produces something like 90+% of all the green leafy vegetable for the United States! Former/active military gets 50% discount, so make sure to ask! And it counts for all in your group..so 4 of us... More

Trip advisor needs to correct the name of this attraction, but don't think they will. Nice historic attraction that a lot of visitors bypass by mistake just because it's not as well know as the prison. It's definatly worth a visit.

We met many nice people, we saw some cute donkeys, a mom and baby too. Our girls were delighted. There were many places to climb. Beautiful country side. We had a cool January day.

Given the closure of the prison, had to justify to the family the Yuma drive. Entrance fee was cheap, I'd say the attractions kept the family entertained for about 1 hour (the heat effected the rest of my crew), but my young kids quickly grew bored. Worth seeing if you are in the neighborhood - and have some time to... More

not exactly Disneyland, or anything remotely like it. you'll drive through a kind of older run down neighborhood to get there, one street over in either direction and you may end up using the forced neighborhood valet service, or being offered a variety of pharmaceuticals for purchase. kids would probably rather grab a fishing pole and try their luck in...

A quaint, small park along the Colorado River. It's a quiet spot for walking or biking. Pretty views and a nice place for a calm little stroll.

I went there because it is a visitor center or at least that was what I thought! Anyway I enjoyed my visit with my hubby! Lots of things to see, souvenirs to buy. Friendly staff that helped me to get to the Coronado house. The visitor center is well run and the little museum is full of artifacts and information.... More
