Very cool park with lots of trails and cool stuff to look at. There is a lot of old miner town equipment and such. If you are into wildlife, the deer flood the park at dusk and are not very afraid. You can get close enough to snap a great picture.

Greenhorn Park is a nice place to go for a walk, play soccer, or enjoy a BBQ. The lake has fish, ducks, turtles, and now pelicans. It is very pleasant there.

We moved here not too long ago and we have fallen in love with this park. We practically come here everyday to walk the dog, ride bikes or trail run. I have not fished here yet, but have heard that it has many fish in the lake. The grounds are clean as are the restrooms. We joined one of the... More

Greenhorn Park is the gem of Yreka. Our family practically lives here in the summer. Love the shaded running/hiking/biking trails, paved trail around the lake, 2 parks, old miners town, and the lake where we fish, kayak, and feed the geese. Absolutely the best Yreka has to offer.

We went here for a small picnic with friends and then went for a walk around the lake. Not the greatest park, but not bad as well

The lake is really quite beautiful, with lots of waterfowl, and a nice hiking trail around the lake. There are also multiple playgrounds, a horsehoe pit, and places to play ball. The bathrooms are kept spotless, and the park always feels safe. Whether we go there to walk our dog, or to picnic, or for a concert, we always enjoy... More

We wanted a little day trip for a hike (coming from Medford) and this turned out to be a great spot. The park is well maintained, lots of historic artifacts, a great reservoir with fishing, and excellent walking trails. We also encountered several mountain bikers (all very pleasant and respectful). Overall, we spent about an hour hiking. This is a... More
