“A Great Place To hang Out With Family and Friends”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Yachats Commons Park is located in the heart of Yachats, Or. It is adjacent to The Commons (city hall/community center/events center), and local shops.
The playground contains a swing set, climbing equipment, two or three spring riders and a giant tree house. Wood chips cushion the ground. Several options for sitting are scattered around. The play area exteds onto a large paved area which includes a scateboard ramp and a basketball hoop. A small garden enhances the park with edible treats. My children are ages 4 to 18, and they all enjoy the playground.
Next to the playground is a large picnic pavilion with picnic tables. It offers protection from rain and wind. We like to have picnics there.
The expansive grassy area just past the pavilion is a great place to run dogs or fly kites. The backstop might even inspire a game of kickball. Our dog plays with other dogs there sometimes.
Just behind the pavilion you can find the trail that meanders through the wetlands area. We like to follow the trail through the trees then walk over to the beach.
Food, restrooms, shopping, the library, lodging and the beach are within walking distance from the park.

“A fun festival”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

The Yachats Celtic Music Festival was centered at the Yachats Commons, with some events nearby. This is an ideal venue for any kind of music or cultural festival. The people of Yachats are warm and welcoming and helpful to the first-time visitor. We will be back.

“Great place to just walk around in”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

A nice little park created from what was undisturbed marshland decades ago. Trails from the park, located just behind the Commons Building right in the middle of Yachats. Volunteers spent several years re-creating a coastal wetlands area, with nice walkways in place to enjoy the myriad plants and animale found there

“Awesome!”

If you want to spend hours and hours doing nothing but watching the waves roll in this is the place to do it. Fantastic photo opportunities. Benches to sit and read a book or just daydream~
