Selah Parks and Recreation



We are pleased to provide the City of Selah and greater Yakima Valley with many recreational opportunities, parks and green spaces, and city-wide events.  With a collaborative effort throughout the city and local groups, there is something for everyone as we stay active and healthy in our beautiful community of Selah!

COVID-19 Update: Tuesday, 6/17/2020

To the Selah Community,

After much work and preparation, we regret to inform the Selah Community that we simply cannot move forward with any Parks and Recreation programs – both indoor or outdoor – until we are successfully in Phase 4 of the Governor’s Re-Open Washington Plan.  We have spent the better part of the last few days communicating with our insurance company, and after much discussion, the risk is too great.  As such, we are cancelling all planned programs through Selah Parks and Recreation, effective immediately.  The exception to this are the fireworks on the 4th of July – this will continue as planned.  We understand that there will be much frustration and confusion by issuing this statement, and we are happy to answer questions as needed. To those of you who are registered for a program, please check your email. We will be providing refunds to all participants over the next few days.  Please trust that we miss you all and are anxiously awaiting the time when we can return to normal activities.  Until then, we will be working on providing you with virtual programs and activities that you and your family can participate in together.  We hope that by sharing your experiences with us, we can remain connected, even when it seems we are a world apart.

Stay safe Selah,

Treesa Morales
Recreation Director
City of Selah
