Yakima Sportsmen State Park
Yakima Sportsman State Park is a 247-acre camping park created in 1940 by the Yakima Sportsman's Association to promote game management and the preservation of natural resources. The park is on the floodplain of the Yakima River and is an irrigated green zone in an otherwise desert area. The park has a variety of deciduous trees that shade camping and picnic areas.
Yakima Air Museum
Before its current incarnation as a museum, Yakima Air Museum was opened by brothers Charlie and Alister McAllister in 1926 and served as one of the longest-running flight schools in the Northwest. You can find this hidden gem in the eastern end of the Yakima Airport, near the corner of 16th and Washington.
