Walking Paths

Pioneer Park

As Walla Walla's first park, Pioneer Park continues to provide many opportunities for the community to play outside. With a large playground and many sports fields, as you would expect, this park offers so much more. Walk under canopy of several state record holding trees on paved paths winding through the park, but don't forget to stop and smell the roses at the Memorial Rose Garden. The newly remodeled Pioneer Park Aviary is also a…

Murr Sports Park

Enjoy a stroll around Murr Sports Park near Walla Walla High School. This park offers a nice paved path to learn to ride a bike or walk a puppy dog or two. With benches evenly spaced around the loop, everyone in the family can recreate within their comfort zone. Relax to the sound of Yellowhawk Creek. Catch a softball, baseball, or soccer game. This community gem should definitely top the after dinner walk list.

Mill Creek Recreation Trail

This path is a great in-town opportunity to get the whole family outside. Playgrounds, bathrooms, benches, and a paved route with multiple access points make it accessible for all. Add in the chance to see wildlife, the flow of Mill Creek, and the scenic Blue Mountains as a back drop--this trail checks off most of the wish list. Speaking of, wish the trail kept going? It does! Join the Bennington Trail system via the Kingfisher…

Whitman Mission National Historic Site

At the edge of town lies a plethora of history. Walk the grounds of Whitman Mission and follow the Oregon Trail. Interpretive displays are spread throughout the premises as are benches, so take a moment and enjoy the natural landscape and wildlife. Two walking paths give you plenty of space to roam. Where else can you stroll along the Oregon Trail and actually see where the wagon wheels once rolled?

Fort Walla Walla Recreation Trail

Enjoy almost a mile of paved trail on the south side of the Jonathan M. Wainwright Memorial VA Medical Center. The trail starts near Fort Walla Walla and ends at West Chestnut Street. As an added bonus, have fun learning a little about our solar system via the planet walk. The Fort Walla Walla Recreation Trail Planet Walk was created by the 2007 Sherwood Trust Community Leadership Class with support from many other community organizations…

Arthur G. Rempel Nature Trail

The Arthur G. Rempel Nature Trail at the Fort Walla Walla Natural Area adjacent to the Fort Walla Walla Museum and west of the VA Medical Center is another spot that provides in-town outdoor recreation. This pocket of nature offers walking paths and birding opportunities. With over a mile of trails and many different paths to explore, this trail feels longer than it really is. Choose your own adventure, and perhaps you’ll spot a Great…
