Parks & Recreation

Our Mission:
Yamhill County Parks are unique natural, cultural, and historic places to be managed, preserved, and restored for people to enjoy outdoor recreation and educational activities. Yamhill County Parks include 17 parks located in rural settings throughout the county that together provide for a variety of recreational activities.
Parks are open to the public and we are accepting reservations for the pavilions.
Summer Parks Quest begins May 27. Join the hundreds of other Yamhill County families visiting ten parks in the summer and be eligible for prizes.
