Nugent Park Mural

The first mural in the 6×26 mural project was completed on September 14th, 2023. The mural’s theme was to celebrate Umatilla Parks and Recreation which is highlighted within the mural through depictions of good sportsmanship through hands clasped in the center of the mural. Additionally depicted in the mural is a baseball player mid-swing as well as a kayaker cruising over the words “Umatilla Together.” The motto of the City of Umatilla. Through collaboration with the muralist, Oowah Zoo, the mural was brought to life and will continue to bring color to Nugent Park for many years to come.
