Riverside Park

RS Badge.png 



Riverside Park is the heart of the Cowlitz County Parks Department. It is a gorgeous 58 acre day-use recreation facility located on the Cowlitz River in Lexington. The back of the park is covered in old growth big leaf maple and is a site to behold in the Fall. 


  • It offers a playground structure for kids 5-12 years old
  • Four separate bathroom facilities with flushable toilets and sinks 
  • About 125 picnic tables through out the park for family gatherings and picnics  
  • A large covered pavilion for events. The pavilion is perfect for special events such as weddings, birthdays, baby showers, and company picnics. Inside are two sinks, electricity, a stand up charcoal grill, and picnic tables.
  • The front of the park includes a sports complex of 3 youth baseball fields, 3 soccer fields, 2 tennis courts ,and a basketball court with four hoops. 
  • There is a large network of paved walking trails with access to the dike along the Cowlitz River to give an areal view of the park. 

 Even with all these amenities, there is plenty of wide open spaces to throw your Frisbee or fly a kite on a windy day.

Currently the park is first come first served. We are in the process of starting a reservation system for the Pavilion and a few picnic sites. We hope to have the system up and running this year.
