This park has everything, except a few good waterfront restaurants and beaches. Miles and miles of waterfront, fishing ponds, ball fields, Frisbee golf, regular golf, walking trails, children's play areas, etc. Just a huge huge park and a wonderful place to visit. Never really feels...More

A wonderful safe place for children to play. Plenty of children's level activities available. As a volunteer at the park several years ago I learned it was a go-to place for parents and their children. Water activities were also available away from the river.

I have taken my granddaughter to the "Playground of Dreams" several times. From the time she was about 18 months up until now when she's 5. It's a great place for younger kids to play. Of course, the weather needs to be fairly nice.

Took my dogs (leashed) for a very pleasant walk along the river. It was a beautiful day, clear and crisp. Other park visitors were out enjoying the day, but it wasn't crowded. Just lovely. When we tired of walking, we drove the length of the...More

In the summer, we visit the park weekly as our home is in Kennewick. Walking paths are pleasant, bicyclists are courteous, the squirrels beg for nuts, and strangers stop and chat. Picnic, walk, bicyclists cycle, or jog, or even fish off the river's banks. Spaces...More

. Most of the park and amenities are free. There is a fee though for golf, overnight camping, and of course any special events (like the hydro-boat races and other scheduled shows)
