Some great trails along the Colorado river. Lots of history here. Territorial prison museum and Quartermaster depot museum nearby.

An entry point to the Wetlands area.
Mar 2021
The entry to this park is beneath the 8 freeway and the Ocean to Ocean bridge. It's pretty much below the historical sights up on the bluff and is a good entry for walks and bike rides along the river, either direction. There are some opportunities for picnicking as well as water sports. But when I was here, there were few people actually using the river.

Another park bites the dust
Jan 2021
Very pretty with the river running by, but it is being taken over by homeless, I saw 3 guys sleeping on the grass, fair amount of trash, some drug deal happening in the back lot, and the bathrooms were a mess, toilets didn't work. Very sad that the citizens spend so much money to have a nice park only to allow it to be ruined. My husband and I questioned wether we should walk around or not.

A nice stroll

We had some free time on a nice winter afternoon so decided to talk a walk in Gateway Park. Pleasant area to walk. We felt safe and enjoyed to easy trip along the waters edge. Not many people but a delightful afternoon journey. Will probably go back.

Beautiful area walk , play , picnic, wade in the water , dogs were playing. Cottonwood area is nice with plenty of rest benches along any direction you walk. Encourage you to look up the history it’s interesting. Great choice if you enjoy outdoor activities.

OK, yes, I have a thing about bridges. Across the river are two older bridges, one RR and one vehicles. Love em!

Some interesting plaques
Jan 2020
There's not a lot to see beyond some plaques explaining the river's history and development, but if you're in downtown Yuma, the park is worth a visit.

Scenic, Accessible Recreation Area
Mar 2019
This is a very nice linear park in the downtown historic district of Yuma. Facilities include a picnic area with grills, fishing pier, playground, beach and restrooms. Parking is free. We stayed at the Garden Inn adjacent to the park and were able to walk the paved trail along the river to the Colorado River State Historic Park and to restaurants on Main St. There is a restored vintage steam locomotive on display next to the hotel and also several small museums nearby in the downtown area such as Sanguinetti House and Yuma History Museum. Gateway Park connects to East and West Wetland Parks so it's possible to walk a couple of miles along the river. Wheelchair access is very good. The Territorial Prison Historic Park is just east of Gateway Park and within walking distance for some people, but the trail was uphill and not paved. We wanted to walk the whole distance of the river trail but it started raining so we had to cut it short. We enjoyed it and would like to return soon.

nice walk
Jan 2020
We visited in January when the weather was beautiful but not too hot. It was a pleasant walk thru the park and up to the prison and back. This is another location that was well maintained. Would be great for a picnic or bike ride.

Nice Walk-Bike around Place To Spend Some Time
Jan 2020
This is a riverside park that is ok for dogs, kids, bikes, and so on. There is the remnants of an old hobo park from the 1930's on site. Very well kept park with lots of parking. We did not have to pay anything to go.
