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.

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!

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.

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!
