Founded in 1904, the City of Kennewick is one of the fastest growing municipalities and Washington’s 13th most populous city with a population of over 62,500 and covering more than 25 square miles. Kennewick is an American Indian word meaning “Winter Paradise.”
As the retail hub of southeastern Washington and northeastern Oregon, shopping oppotuniities abound in west Kennewick in the area of Columbia Center Mall, and in east Kennewick in the historic Downtown Shopping District. Enjoy family fun at one of Kennewick’s 27 beautifully maintained parks. Columbia Park is 360-acres of river frontage that has something to offer everyone. Youngsters flock to the Playground of Dreams and the seasonal Aquatic Splash Park. Weekends and warm weather bring out the J & S Dreamland Express, an open-air, multi-car train ride that can be enjoyed by the entire family. During fishing season, children are invited to drop a hook into the Family Fishing Pond. The last full weekend in July, Kennewick is host to the fast and furious unlimited hydroplane races known as the Columbia Cup. Home to the Toyota Center, Kennewick sporting events are fast, furious, and full of family fun; whether attending the ultra-exciting Arena Football 2 League Tri-Cities Fever games, or the Western Hockey League Tri-City American matches.
