“GREAT view of the Columbia River and GREAT for family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

For serval miles along the Columbia River is a wonderful park. Special items, stocked fishing pond for children, duck pond, GREAT playground equipment for children and during the summer on week-ends a "train" for children. For adults a 9-hole golf course and most importantly a Veterans Memorial. We have visited it a number of times, not just on Veterans and Memorial Days but even in the middle of winter when we are the only ones there. A very special place. Another item - the hydro races in the Tri-Cities are best viewed from this side of the river as the many vendors have everything frm adult beverages to things for all ages. Whenever famiy visits with children this is one must-do places to enjoy the area.

“Nice, Wide Open Spaces”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

If you want a nice leisurely walk, a healthy jog, or water-ski on the Columbia, this is a great place to do it.
There are wide open spaces to play frisbee or volleyball, miles of nature trails, and plenty of areas for a nice family picnic.

“Needs some work!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

This park is ok, but needs some upgrades like the bike path is so rough. They need to look to see what the bike path looks like on the Pasco side. It's black top and smooth! Lots of fishing spots, the Frisbee golf area is huge and always in use, golf course and practice area, lots of places to picnic, but needs more lawn areas along the shore. I am sure a lot is used for wildlife, but some more areas cleared would be nice. They had camping there a very long time ago. Now it sits unused. Could be a money maker for the City of Kennewick, but maybe there is a plan for that area to be used for something else in the future? Not a bad park, just needs to upgrade it's bicycle path especially needs it on the south side of the road where there is no path by the golf course and practice area. I like to ride with traffic and not on the otherside of the road. I would rather see this upgraded than money spent on a Carousel!

“Words to not describe how beautiful this park is!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

Beautiful strip of green that runs beside the river. It is absolutely gorgeous! If you want to spend a day outside, this park is the place to do it.

“Nice Park Along the Columba River”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

Columbia Park is right along the river in Kennewick. It's quite large, very long (miles) and narrow, basically a strip of land along the river. It has great old shade trees, picnic areas, lots of wild life (especially birds, we saw a bald eagle), fishing places, etc. They have unlimited hydroplane races in the park in July and Kennewick Man (the ancient skeleton) was found along one of the beaches. A very fun place for kids and families!
