Beautiful park
Apr 2021 • Friends
This park is well-maintained and felt safe. A lovely place to see and photograph wildlife and desert plants, along the Colorado River bank. Plenty of shady spots for relief from Yuma’s sun. We saw rabbits, ground squirrels, lizards, and quail. I grew up in Yuma before this park existed, and was thrilled to experience it while visiting decades after I moved to the east coast. Thank you, City of Yuma, for proving a nice place for residents and visitors to enjoy.

West Wetlands Is A Nicely Created Family Fun Section Along The River
Mar 2021
If you've come to Yuma for a little R and R from colder climates, you might want to spend a good half day here. This section of the wetlands along the Colorado is Yuma's recreational centerpiece. It's still being developed but you'll find a fishing pond, plenty of beach space, play areas for children and river entry spots. The hike and bike track also passes through here and will connect you with the city historical area as well as the more natural east wetlands area. There's also a more botanical area with nature trails and information plaques. You'll find lots of walkers and cyclists, dog walkers, and a smattering of kayakers and fishers. Just remember, as you move into later Spring and, especially summer, it will be awfully hot here. So be careful.

Humming birds.
Feb 2020
We went late morning and we were very pleased to see humming birds in two different locations on our walk along the Colorado river. There were also other birds singing there heads off. Quail running in the bushes. Very relaxing place to linger.

Glad they cleaned out the area so it is no longer a homeless camp. Felt safe here after dark. Mix of families and individuals enjoying the cool evening. did see something ion the parking area that looked like maybe a drug deal. Car drove in and 3 young people walked over and exchanged something with the people in the car - then the car left HUM

Pretty little park away from the bustle of the city.
Dec 2018 • Couples
The walk along the river is great. The upper path though seems underdeveloped once you get beyond the grassed area around the man-made lake. This area would be great for family picnics as there are several Ramada’s with picnic tables. We saw people with fishing poles at the little lake.

Sweet little spot for hanging out
Jul 2018 • Family
The park offers ramadas, restrooms, and the adjacent Vincent wolfe playground. Here's a good stop-off for a mid-bike ride rest (water fountains for topping off the bottles), or dropping a line and doing some fishing.
