PUBLIC ARTWORK


Visit Main Street Waitsburg and stop to play a game or snap a picture with our beautiful bronze sculptures. Get game pieces at Weller Public Library to play "The Waitsburg Story" (artist Wayne Chabre) with Fannie Weller. Then cross the street to pose with the City's founding fathers in "The Waitsburg Trilogy" (artist Jeffrey Hill) located in front of City Hall, and meander down further to see "The Waitsburg Monument" (artist Squire Broel) that features markings made by our Waitsburg kids and community members!

PRESTON PARK

Coppei Avenue & Hwy 12
Waitsburg, WA 99361

Our city park is the perfect place to take a break and relax. Cool off under the lush canopy of trees, have fun on the playground, or take advantage of the BBQ grills for the perfect picnic. If you listen closely, you might even hear the hooting of our resident owls. Dogs are welcome, provided that they are on leash and any waste is bagged and disposed of in the trash. The park is conveniently located on Highway 12, and just a block from historic Main Street.
