"Trek Yakima" will Direct Visitors to Local Attractions

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.--The city of Yakima revealed some brand new signage Tuesday, which should help make things a bit easier for visitors.

Ken Wilkinson, the Parks and Recreation Manager, said approximately 30 signs will be placed around Yakima over the summer.

Wilkinson said he wants to make it clear that Trek Yakima is not a new logo for the Greenway or Cowiche canyon. It just encompasses leisure activities that are already in place.
