“This flat loop circles the lake and offers views from two docks. Bring binoculars for bird-watching!”

Hours: Open half an hour before sunrise, close half an hour after sunset. No swimming for people or pets due to high levels of toxic algae. For dogs, there are three fully fenced areas for off-leash play, including one just for small dogs.
Flat and well maintained.
Wapato Park is a great place to visit for someone looking for a quick escape or for those wanting to stay for the day. From picnic and playground areas, to the relaxing garden or the lakeside loop, this park is lovely. There is even a waterfall to explore near the entrance.
The lakeside loop is flat and wheelchair accessible from two parking lots. There are two docks where you can stop for bird-watching. The north side of the loop will bring you over a land-bridge, and then around to a playground area. Alternatively, if you veer north you can access the Pipeline Trail
(not wheelchair accessible).
