Yuma Territorial Park and Museum - When the buildings first served as a prison in 1875, the Territorial Prison was under continuous construction through labour provided by the inmates until the last prisoner left in 1909. It was then occupied by the Yuma Union High School from 1910 to 1914. Today it now functions as a historical museum, managed by the Arizona State Parks and renamed as the Yuma Territorial Prison State Historic Park. It features several educational and entertaining exhibits on the history of Arizona's first prison, and the park is notable for its old west style and eerie prison cells.
West Wetlands Park - The West Wetlands Park is a 110-acre public park located at the northwest edge of Yuma, along the Colorado river and within the Yuma Crossing National Heritage Area. There are several multi-use trails and open grassy areas within the park, perfect for leisure and recreational activities. People gather to the park to meditate, exercise, play sports, have picnics and barbecues, observe birds, take photos, and even hold parties. There is also a pond wherein one can go fishing, tubing, canoeing, jet-skiing, swimming, and more. There are also two playgrounds for children. The park was constructed partially by volunteers, and is managed by non-profit organisation Yuma Crossings National Heritage Area Corporation.
