The City of Colfax is rich with parks. The 2,880 citizens of Colfax support 11 parks with a variety of amenities. Four parks are placed strategically in neighborhoods—Stan McClintock Lookout Park is on Valleyview on the east hill of Colfax; Hamilton Park is at the foot of Meadow Street to serve the south Colfax neighborhoods; Eels Park, on West Street, serves the west neighborhoods; and Good Park is on Highway 195 at the south end of town.


The two major destination parks are at the north end of Colfax. Schmuck Park serves as a neighborhood park for the north end and can accommodate large groups for special events. Tied into Schmuck Park is the Skatepark and Municipal Swimming Pool. McDonald Park is at the north city limits along the North Palouse River. This newer park features four ball fields, a soccer field and a walking pathway.


The Codger Park is a tourist attraction on Main Street with its chainsaw sculpture. Maggie Cain park and Firemen's Park are the entrances to Colfax at the north and south ends respectively and Niehenke park is a small green space on Mill Street perfect for enjoying lunch outside for downtown working people.
