This is a great historical walk! Be prepared to walk, though. It is spread out, and if it's hot, make sure you bring water to hydrate. The park guides are very knowledgeable and are eager to answer questions.

This historic park is a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of downtown and take you back to the early 20th Century lifestyle. Things were simpler, and much harder. There is plenty of old wagons and building to see. One particularly interesting part it the Yuma Siphon, incredible engineering for the times.

This was very interesting. They had a civil war days reenactment when I was there. The people were very friendly, informative and helpful. The demonstrations were very interesting.

We arrived just as the farmer's market was packing up for the day, however they have several buildings and shops to explore on a very pleasant walk. It also looked to be handicapped accessible if necessary.

We enjoyed visiting the historical buildings filled with artifacts and explanations of each building and gear. We were impressed by what a strategic spot Yuma was in our country's frontier days and later. The buildings are in good shape, housing a variety of historical vehicles, furniture, uniforms, and everyday goods. One exhibit explains about the waterways that converge near Yuma... More
