Enjoy Yakima Parks this Summer

Waterslide 1

From swimming to sports camps, softball leagues to volleyball leagues, there is plenty being offered this summer by Yakima Parks & Recreation.  Details are available in the 2021 Summer Program Guide

Highlights include the return of live concerts and outdoor movies to City of Yakima parks, as well as the re-opening of Franklin Pool.

Yakima Transit and Yakima Parks and Recreation are again teaming up to make it easier for swimmers to use Franklin Pool and Lions Pool this summer thanks to the Bus to Pool Program. Through August 21st, paying to swim in one of Yakima’s two City-owned pools or the YMCA Rotary Aquatic Center entitles the purchaser to a special Yakima Transit bus pass at no cost to and from the pools.

Bus service will be provided from Kissel Park, 1525 South 32nd Avenue, every Thursday at 12:30 pm and head to Franklin Pool. The bus will also pick up passengers along Mead Avenue and 32nd Avenue eastbound.

Masks are required for Yakima Transit drivers and passengers in keeping with COVID-19 safety mandates for public transportation.

Additional bus information is available on the Yakima Transit website at https://yakimatransit.org/ or by calling 575-6175.
