In 1805, Lewis and Clark camped at the confluence of the Columbia and Snake rivers in an area that 200 years later is called Sacajawea State Park. Little did they know the surrounding area would soon be called Pasco, today a bustling, thriving comunity of 50,500 residents.
Pasco’s growth is energized by transportation, commerce, and trade. In the beginning, the city relied entirely on the river and rail for transportation, but has since matured into a genuine transportation hub including surface, air, water, and rail–all modes moving agricultural, dry goods, technology, and products to near and distance corners of the globe.
Pasco has postioned itself as a “sports-minded” community by building 20 soccer fields; eight softball fields; one professional minor league baseball stadium; seven baseball parks; one multi-purpose outdoor stadium with state-of-the-art field turf, and a ten-lane, all-weather running track capable of hosting state-level football and track events; a 50 meter pool; a professional indoor rodeo arena; and a dedicated 3.1 mile cross-country course for walkers, joggers, and runners. Golfers can also enjoy nearly year-round play or for the tennis enthusiast, there are 24 public courts available. For bikers and hikers there are 15 miles of pathway, much of it overlooking the majestic Columbia River. If it’s a positive lifestyle you yearn for, Pasco offers it.
