And the park carries that feeling forward. It complements the quaintness of the city of Ellensburg while providing its own charm with the flowing river, creeks, ducks, and footpaths. The park offers an easy day hike with family and kid-friendly amenities.
You will discover a great birds-eye view of Ellensburg, the Ellensburg Rodeo arena, Kittitas County Fairgrounds, Central Washington University's campus, the Kittitas Valley and the Stuart Mountain Range. Located on the Westside of Craig's Hill there is the Sagebrush Trail to explore. During the winter kids can be seen sledding down the hills in this area.
