Outdoors & Recreation


gateway-parkGateway Park, part of the riverfront development along the Colorado River.

 Enjoying the outdoors can be as simple as going to the neighborhood park for a picnic or a pickup game of basketball.

Yuma County residents are lucky enough to live in a community that has several parks, big and small, within walking distance.  If the desiered parks are not close enough to walk to, the drive takes only a few minutes. 

Here's a list of parks, pools and athletic facilities located in the Yuma area.
