New Park Downtown

Work is underway on the new Performance Park being built at the corner of A Street and 2nd Street in downtown Yakima. Yakima County Commissioners  recently signed a ten year land lease with the Committee for Downtown Yakima (CDY) and agreed to  provide $40,000 to develop the land into a downtown park.

The park has been designed to accommodate live performances and will feature a gently sloping terrain with shrubs and trees.  The City of Yakima will provide another $240,000 to install streetlights, planting boxes, and sidewalk improvements along the periphery of the park site. It is projected the park will be substantially completed by the end of this year and ready for use by next Spring.
