If you have thoughts on programs and activities for the Washington Fruit Community Center (formerly the YPAL center at Miller Park) Yakima Parks and Rec would like to hear from you!

The parks peeps have set up tour opportunities, a listening session and a brief presentation scheduled for next Monday, June 14th, at the Washington Fruit Community Center located north of Miller Park at 602 North 4th Street.

The Washington Fruit Community Center Listening Session/Tour schedule includes:

  • Tours from 6:00 to 6:30 pm
  • Presentation and listening session from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm
  • Tours and informal discussion from 7:30 pm to 8 pm

Yakima Parks and Recreation is responsible for programs and activities at the Washington Fruit Community Center at Miller Park. That came about as the result of an operational change the Yakima City Council formally approved for the center earlier this year.  In the past facility was used for boxing and wrestling, cooking and classwork but there any number of things the location could be used for so the Parks and Recreation folks are encouraging you to bring your energy and your ideas to the meeting next Monday evening to the facility can best meet the needs and wants of the neighborhood community.
