Yelm City Park is the City's first public park and is the centerpiece of Yelm. The park stays busy entertaining families year-round and is host to many community-wide events, including 'Prairie Days,' the 'Annual Jazz Festival,' and 'Christmas in the Park.' The picnic areas, located at the park are also available for reservation.
The park has received several improvements over the last few years, including the new playground equipment, splash pad, Yelm Community Center, electric car charging stations, and a new irrigation system that keeps the field watered and maintained throughout the year.
The splash pad, located in Yelm City Park is the most popular family attraction in the community with multiple water fountains and jets, rings, and other features for children to cool off in the summer heat. Picnic tables surround the park, making it a great spot to land your picnic basket while the kids play.
