Administration - Parks & Recreation

The City of Ellensburg Parks & Recreation Department strives to enhance the lives of community residents and visitors of all ages by providing a wide range of quality leisure experiences in our parks, recreation facilities, programs, and services. Through our efforts we will advance the health and wellness of individuals and families, foster greater community spirit, protect and enhance our natural resources and environment, contribute to the vitality of the local economy and promote a high quality of life in Ellensburg.

To guide our work, the Parks and Recreation Department developed a Park, Recreation, and Open Space Plan in 2016. The plan provides our department with a roadmap to guide work over the next ten years.
