Yamhill County Parks & Recreation
Yamhill County’s park system is “unique natural, cultural, and historic places where people can enjoy outdoor recreation and education activities”. Yamhill County currently owns and maintains 17 parks and open space areas totaling 126.4 acres. Eleven of the sites are developed, five are undeveloped, and one is leased. There are two county-owned and decommissioned landfills, one located adjacent to the Monroe Boat Landing on the South Yamhill River, and one near Rogers Landing on the Willamette River. Both former landfill sites have potential for passive recreation and open space once reclamation is completed.
Each of the developed park properties provide day-use facilities for a variety of activities. These activities include: picnicking, boating, bird watching, small events and gatherings, fishing, hiking, outdoor education, and etc… Below are links to descriptions of and directions to each park:
