Lewiston Community Park is a 187-acre project that has been in the making for more than 20 years. It is now moving forward in a significant way with the completion and approval of a master plan design for its development and implementation. What once was a distant wish is now becoming a reality - a destination park for the residents of the Lewis-Clark Valley and surrounding communities.
The focal point of the park is a community gathering place with a large two-tiered plaza, trellised promenade, courtyard spaces, performance stages, and places to sit and congregate. The park provides space for community events such as a farmers' market, scheduled or impromptu performances, ceremonies, movies in the park, and other activities. A destination playground and splash pad are located adjacent to the plaza, along with restrooms and ample parking.
Other amenities include a Little League baseball complex, adult softball complex, RV park, amphitheater, multi-purpose field, sand volleyball courts, two smaller playgrounds, a bike park, and paved trails for pedestrian circulation.

In 2004, the Lewiston School District, Lewis-Clark State College (LCSC), and the City of Lewiston formed a "Tri-Partnership" to purchase 310 acres of private property north of Warner Avenue. Today, the acreage is home to a newly constructed (2020) Lewiston High School (77 acres), newly constructed (2020) LCSC Career Technical Center (29 acres), and Lewiston Community Park (187 acres). New city streets - Cecil Andrus Way and Community Drive - were constructed on remaining acreage to provide access throughout the property.
