McMurphy Park

McMurphy Park on Annonen Road

Enjoy McMurphy Park's vast open space, with picturesque natural foliage, picnic tables in the shade, a fire pit, bbq stands and easy access to Olequa Creek. The creek has two main access points in the park. The westerly access point (at the bottom of the park) is where one can find the "Little Falls" which is the namesake of the city before it was changed to be called Vader. REMEMBER: There are no lifeguards at the water and any swimming is at your own risk. Portions of the park can be rented for private events. Please contact City Hall for more information: 360-295-3222 or
