Located in Central Washington state, the Yakima Greenway boasts ten miles of paved pathway, three parks, two fishing lakes, and four river access landings along with protected and natural areas. Greenway facilities are free and open to the public year 'round, dawn to dusk.
The Yakima Greenway Path was designated a National Recreation Trail by the U.S. Department of the Interior in 1993, bringing it into the nation's system of excellent trails. The pathways are patrolled by the Greenway's Courtesy Cart and by Yakima and Union Gap bicycle police.
The Greenway is the perfect place for walking, bird watching, fishing, running, biking, skating, picnicking, and enjoying healthy outdoor activities in solitude or with friends and family. It is wheelchair accessible, with fishing piers designed for the disabled at Rotary Lake.
The Greenway is fondly known as "The Jewel of Yakima" and is a favorite place enjoyed and supported by thousands of residents and visitors every year. There is no place else like it in the Yakima Valley!
