Take a Stroll through Central Washington University

Central Washington University is quiet during the month of August each year, making it the perfect outdoor playground for families. The wide pathways are great for strollers and kiddos on wheels, and expansive grassy knolls are perfect for a midday picnic. There are many art pieces and sculptures along the way, including a recently installed “Mammoth” sculpture that is ready for the family photo op. Discover which piece speaks to you while soaking up the mid-summer sun on campus.
