Parks & Green Spaces

Pullman's Parks & Green-spaces

Our beautiful city has a number of green-spaces and parks for the public to enjoy and utilize for a variety of recreational uses throughout the year. These spaces do not have a designated shelter that can be reserved, but none-the-less they can be used and enjoyed for a leisurely walk with nature, picnics, walking the dog and even provide great photography backdrops.  The possibilities are endless and our department strives to make each park and green-space an experience to remember for our community.
