Nice paved path for walking or riding bikes. 3 good boat launches. Playground of screams is great playground for kids. Kids fishing pond is stocked once in a while. Supposed to be for kids but you see adults breaking the law and over fishing it. Park has gazebos and tables, plenty of room to throw a Frisbee with friends or... More

Wonderful path beside the lovely Columbia River. Also a nice bike path...sometimes it is both a walk and hike path. It is clean for the most part. The park is well maintained and there are some decent toilets.

We visited this park for the first time and we were impressed. There is several miles of beautiful views of the river, plus a very nice green lawn section. Its great for walks, picnics, boating, and scenic views. There are beach areas. There is also sitting areas to watch boats and it looked to me like periodic boat races. There... More

Nice paths, clean. I appreciate that there are not a lot of low bushes at the east end of the park. It's a safety thing. The park is pretty running along the Columbia River. I do wish though that there was more of a police patrol through there....clearly there was "other" business being conducted besides enjoying the park.

There are some wonderful features about this park and they have spent a considerable amount of money making it family friendly, however, the grass is horrible. It is full of Barley and goat heads.. Not a fun thing to walk on.. They take very good care of the golf course though..

Columbia Park in Kennewick is a must see. I stretches along the Columbia River for several miles and is lined with picnic tables, benches and parklets. There is a nine hole par 3 golf course and driving range along the drive and for the kids, there is the Dream Park, which is a large playground, complete with fishing lake (small)... More

The Columbia Park follows a good portion of the Columbia River. The views are amazing! There are many places to park and get into the outdoors. There's a playground for the kids as well as a little duck pond. The Sacajawea Heritage Trail also goes through part of it. There is still a lot for me to explore, but I... More

Great fun for young or old! Fantastic views of the Columbia river. Play ground of dreams, golf course and a family fishing pond are all located within the park.

I am not a local. It was difficult to figure out where the park started and ended using Navigator. First time there, was in a more run down edge of it. Paths were not marked well. Bathrooms available but looked terrible. Shaded areas. Huge park. Some parts not as well maintained as others.
