Park Information

Jimmie R. Yee Park, located in the Caselman Ranch subdivision, provides numerous recreational and aesthetic amenities to the neighborhood, including playgrounds for tots and older children, basketball and multi-use open space. Thoughtful and creative features were designed into the playgrounds, of which some elements appear to grow out of rock beds and log piles. The play areas are dotted with elements found in nature, stimulating play and reflecting local plants and animals.

This park was named in honor of Jimmie R. Yee, a longtime local leader whose service to the community dates back to 1963. In addition to serving on many commissions and boards, Yee served two terms on the Sacramento City Council and two terms as a member of the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors for District 2, which includes much of the Southgate Recreation and Park District. A structural engineer during his professional life, Yee founded one of the Sacramento valley’s largest consulting engineering firms and provided design services for many Sacramento trademark buildings.
