BMX Track-Bring your Bike!

If you have a BMX enthusiast in the family be sure to bring his/her bicycle along on your visit to the Yakima Valley. The track, located in the city of Union Gap is the official site of Yakima Valley BMX, "where no one sits on the bench." Group races are usually scheduled on Saturdays.

Set in the beautiful Ahtanum Youth Park, this 74-acre park was once a Department of Agriculture farm labor camp, where well established trees shade picnic areas.

As well as the BMX Track, there are opportunities to play soccer, basketball, tennis, volleyball, and horseshoes. Other facilities are available to reserve for large group gatherings such as covered picnic shelters, two buildings, a 4-H Ropes Challenge Course and an outdoor arena for equestrian use. The park is open daily from 9:00 a.m. until dusk. There is a small fee for parking.
