Yucaipa is known for an abundance of park and recreational facilities, drawing residents and visitors to recreate, attend community events or festivals, play active sports, or simply enjoy the outdoors together.
The City of Yucaipa has 14 public parks, including an equestrian arena, a municipal pool, and other special use facilities. Yucaipa local parks range in size from 1 to 20 acres and offer a quiet retreat from everyday life — to enjoy nature, walk pets, picnic, or enjoy a stroll through the park. More active recreational activities can be enjoyed in 7th Street Park, Avenue I Park, and Yucaipa Community Park.
