This is a great park to go to for all kinds of outdoor activities. You can hike or bike around the lake, have a nice picnic or feed the ducks and geese which is what we really enjoy doing. The newer bathrooms have always been nice and clean. The mining town equipment is interesting to look at also. There is... More

I visited with my three year old for some peace and quiet. It was beautiful and I loved that they have a fenced in playground.

The park is clean with some interesting gold mining artifacts. Great place for a picnic. There are walking trails and trails for bicycles. Good for walks in the woods.

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.
