Hello Greenway Partners,
Summer is in full swing at the Yakima Greenway. If you have not visited the Yakima Greenway yet, you are missing some of the best things about summer.
The Fishing Ponds are stocked, the Eagles are nesting at Rotary Lake and it's nice and cool under the shade trees at Sarg Hubbard park.
THANK YOU to The Yakima Valley Community Foundation and United Way of Central Washington.
The Yakima Greenway was recently awarded a generous grant to support the staffing and sanitation of the public restrooms at Sarg Hubbard park. In partnership with Camp Hope the Yakima Greenway team can now safely open and keep our park restroom clean and sanitized for your convenience. We still strongly urge that you come to the park and trail prepared with you own hand sanitizer and toilet paper.... just in case. Please note that some pit toilets along the trail remain closed. We apologize for the inconvenience.
WE RUN ON VOLUNTEER POWER:
If you are looking for a great social distancing activity to get you out of the house and helping your community... Give the Yakima Greenway a call and become a volunteer.
We are currently looking for water cart drivers, trash collectors, weed pullers and tree trimmers. If you like trail clean-up and clearing... we have a job for that. If you have a special skill in gardening or painting, we have a job for that too!
The Yakima Greenway team practice safe social distancing and can provide you with PPE (personnel protective equipment).
Because we are a 501(c)3 all contributions of time are greatly appreciated.
Give us a call at 509-453-8280 ext 1. THANK YOU.
The restrooms at Sarg Hubbard Park are currently open.
If you are heading out to the Greenway this weekend, please remember to bring your water and sunscreen.

The Yakima Greenway staff are encouraging everyone to continue practicing social distancing while on the Greenway trails and to follow the personal hygiene recommendations made by the CDC. While enjoying the Greenway parks and trails, we encourage you to come prepared with your hand sanitizer, and picnic table covers.
