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

We've been biking on the paths a couple times each week for some time now, and it's most unfortunate that Kennewick can't seem to take care of Columbia park and it's trails like Richland or Pasco do. Shrubs, weeds, & goat heads encroaching onto the...More

So with so many acres of prime waterfront, why wouldn't there be an enclosed off-leash area for dogs to run and swim? Seems odd that for the cost of a few hundred yards of fencing the Corp of Engineers could open visitation to a whole...More

Stopped by to see if we wanted to partake in the 4th of July festivities later in the week and found out it was a great park! The play area for the kids was fantastic! Great views of the water and the park is HUGE!...More

Our kids could have played in the playground of dreams all day. Sadly, we didn't bring swim gear so we couldn't enjoy the awesome splash pad next to it. Next time!

There's just something for everyone here. If you like to fish, there are some spots by the river to go fishing. People come here to walk, to jog, and even bike. There are picnic areas where families can gather and a playground and waterpark for...More

There are multiple places just outside the Park that have RV accommodations if the Park fills up before you arrive in your RV. Just Google search it for a list. I wouldn't count on finding RV space at the Park for such a... 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)
