CPCA
P. O. Box 717
Naches WA 98937

Membership

Jim Sprick Community Park Rental

Jim Sprick Community Park is available to all Nile area residents (only) for day-use. In order to obtain income to provide improvements to the Park, local groups of larger than 25 people and out-of-the-area groups may be able to rent the Park but are required to make reservations, sign a contract outlining use of the Park, and pay a fee.

In recent years, the Park was been rented for weddings, receptions, reunions, and like events. Overnight dry-camping is also available for large groups (no hook-ups are available), but no camping is allowed for the general public. The Park is being kept rustic, although a large covered picnic area with a refrigerator is available, a new playground and an approximately ¼-mile paved walking path has been added, along with showers and flush-toilets. For more information on the park or click here for a map

Clubhouse Rental

Nile Community Clubhouse located on the lower Nile Road is available to rent for business meetings, weddings, parties, reunions and other indoor activities. If desired, lunch, dinner or snacks can be catered from the Woodshed Restaurant or other local establishments. Amenities include tables and chairs, a full kitchen and other incidentals. The Clubhouse can accommodate 80 people; cost to rent is $100.00 per day.

Nile Valley Community Days - July 19-20, 2014

Nile Valley Days is held at Sprick Park during the third full weekend in July of each year. This weekend is packed with fun family activities: Many vendors with hand-crafted items, food booths, displays, kid’s games, egg-toss, live entertainment, Lions’ Bingo, black-powder demonstrations, horseshoe tournaments, rescue demonstrations by Central WA Mountain Rescue, and amateur wood events including the spike drive, cross-cut saw, wood-splitting, and axe throw. When available, we also have archery demonstrations, pony rides for the kids, alpacas on display, and other events. Each year we try to include a new family-oriented activity. A $1.00 donation is taken at the gate, but is donation only.
