MOSES LAKE — Looking for something to do this summer? The City of Moses Lake has plenty of parks and recreational activates to keep the community on the move during these summer months.
One of the more popular activities are summer baseball and softball leagues for people of all ages. There are two sports complexes in the city, which see plenty of action over the summer, the Paul Lauzier Athletic Complex and the Larson Playfield.
The fields are public lands so people who aren’t part of organized athletics can still use them for practice or for pleasure. It’s strongly encouraged that if private individuals wish to use the park that they plan it with the city so that the fields can be properly managed.
Recreation Supervisor, Carrie Hoiness, is kept busy through the summer months by scheduling the fields for all the locals who want to play baseball and softball.
"We're always pretty full, but looking to accommodate new users and groups," Hoiness said. "We're always looking for new people to come to the area and enjoy our ballfields."
The most popular Parks and Recreation owned land is the Surf n’ Slide water park, right next to McCosh Park off of Fourth Street in downtown Moses Lake. Unlike most city-owned park land, the water park costs money to get into, but it’s complete with waterslides, beach volleyball, a lazy river and a surfing simulator to make it worth the customer’s money.
The Parks and Recreation department own 46 parks in the City of Moses Lake, many of which provide activities for locals to participate in.
