Sacahawea [Heritage] Park's, paved and lined 23 mile bike/walk path which runs right along the edge of the Columbia river is a nice easy ride or stroll [ the bike trail actually runs in a loop, over the Columbia around to Kennwick via 3 different bridges]. Most of the sitting or picnicing areas, in the park, are nicely grassed and shaded with trees, there is also a small playground, however most of the bike trail/path is exposed to the sun/ elements & in the open. An interesting thing about this Park is that at the East end the Snake River empties into the Columbia and at the West end of the Park the Yakima River also empties ito the Columbia.
This park appeared to be used alot by the locates. It is a very clean, well maintained park and it also has a boat launch!.....lots of people sking and tubing on the river!
