Saturday In The Parks!
Today, we take a look at Yakima’s two skate parks. Yakima is home to two public skate parks, one on the east side and one on the west.
The Chesterley Skate Park is located at Chesterley Park, 40th Avenue and River Road. Opened in 2000. 10,000 square feet.
It features bowl with short snake run, eight-foot quarter pipe, four-foot quarter pipe, six-foot quarter pipe, two-foot ramp, Bauer box, three-foot pyramid, Inline rail, skateboard rail, stairs, and a variety of ramps and walls.
Kiwanis Skate Park opened November 3, 2008. Located at the corner of Fair Avenue and Maple Street, its 8,800-square-foot layout is divided into a 4,000-square-foot bowl and a 12-foot-wide streetscape with steps, ramps and rails. The skate park is unique in that it is located under towering 50-year-old trees.
