Columbia Tech Center’s trails and parks provide close-to-home recreational areas, educational experiences, natural landscapes and beautiful communities.
The 25,000 square foot natural playground offers experiences that mimic play in nature. Nature play areas stimulate a child's imagination and creativity and provide a place where children can discover and become lifelong stewards of the environment.
Bring the family for an exploration of the boardwalk, then go on an eye-spy quest for native plants and wildlife, like the State Bird of Washington or even the mythic Sasquatch.
During the summer months, Columbia Tech Center along with The City of Vancouver, hosts Sunday evening concerts from local artists. So, pack up your loved ones and a picnic basket to join the summer fun at CTC.
Sundays from 6-8pm, July – August.
Challenge your friends to a lively match of hoops or a classic game of H-O-R-S-E. The court is first-come, first-served - perfect for an impromptu neighborhood pick-up game.
Exploring Columbia Tech Center by foot is a fun and healthy way to spend the day. More than 6 miles of walking paths help make our community more livable by providing opportunities for physical activity, which improves fitness and mental health.
An extension of Columbia Tech Center’s connected walking paths, the 1,500 foot nature trail parallels Mill Plain Boulevard and offers an opportunity to take in views from a tranquil vantage point.
Take an afternoon stroll and support local vendors at the East Vancouver Farmers Market.
Thursdays from 10am - 2pm, July – September. More Info
When nature calls, you don’t have to head home. Centrally located near the Columbia Tech Center’s other outdoor amenities, park restrooms are available for your convenience.
