Pasco WA Area Information

City of Pasco

Welcome to Pasco, WA

Pasco Homes For Sale

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 honoring their American Indian guide. Little did they know the surrounding area would soon be called Pasco, today a bustling, thriving community of 61,000.

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 distant corners of the globe.

This effort requires the support of a variety of businesses, industries and government involved in communications, utilities, education and government agencies, all working in harmony to maintain a growing, sustainable economy. Because there are good schools, health care facilities, churches, recreational areas and predominantly good weather, it is a place where people put down roots and raise families in a safe, forward-thinking, active environment.

Pasco positioned 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 at a professional course, or if you enjoy tennis 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. www.pasco-wa.gov
