The City of Ellensburg maintains several quality parks in Ellensburg Washington.  Many of the parks in Ellensburg are home to sporting events such as soccer and softball, but they are equally enjoyed by folks who want to spend some time with friends and family in a beautiful outdoor environment.


The flagship of all parks in the City of Ellensburg is Irene Rinehart Riverfront Park.  Known by locals as Carey Lake, the 117 acre facility is very popular in summer time as a good place to cool off in one of the lakes, and for its family friendly atmosphere.  Follow Unptanum Rd. west from Canyon Rd about 1.5 miles, follow blacktop drive approximately 3/4 of a mile to parking lot.
