SunWest Park is a new recreational waterfront facility that has opened up in northwest Pasco, just off of Hwy 19. The park has been developed around a former limestone mine, known locally as the the “Mines” or “SunWest Mines”. Gracing the shores of the 70 acre spring-fed lake you will find beautiful white sand that creates an unparalleled beach atmosphere.
At SunWest Park, we strive to create a family-friendly atmosphere where people from all walks of life can spend a few hours relaxing and getting away from the rush of life. With the gorgeous, natural setting, relaxing in the sun comes easy! With swim sections ranging from 3ft to 6ft deep, kids can safely swim. Our thick sand is perfect for building a sand castle or carving a sand creature. With beautiful SunWest sunsets, lots of people come in the late afternoon just to watch the sun paint the sky!
For those who also want to participate in activities, we offer a variety of amenities. For the explorer, we offer paddleboarding and kayaking. Participants can paddle around anywhere on the lake, checking out some of the unique marine life.
The Aqua Park is also a huge hit and a fun challenge. This inflatable obstacle course on the water was easily the most popular attraction at SunWest this past summer. Kids and adults alike enjoy the challenge of climbing over each obstacle and trying to stay on the inflatables, all while it’s slippery and wet!
We have also recently opened the first of many wakeboard cable systems. Beginners and experienced riders can learn new skills behind our SesitecUSA System 2.0 cable. Never wakeboarded before? Our friendly, hospitable staff will gladly coach up anyone who needs it. Our youngest rider to date was 3, and the oldest was 73! With plans to be a premier wakeboard facility, what we currently offer is just the beginning. We are in the process of building a Full Size Cable, to be opened Summer 2016.
We offer several sand volleyball courts, where families can play a fun game, or collegiate athletes visit to practice and play. We’ve got several tournaments lined up, as well as child and adult recreational athletic leagues.
We offer yoga classes on the water, as well. The unique Yoga Watermat® is a stable, foam mat anchored into the water for the practice of yoga, fitness, or meditation. What more could one ask for to be in a meditative mood other than being on the water on a breezy, sunny day?
SunWest Park is also available for events-from a small birthday party or team party to large, corporate events, we can handle it all. Check out our monthly movie nights. We also host fundraisers, free events, major athletic competitions, so check out the Calendar on our website to see what’s coming up.
