When Recreation and Rehabilitation were added to MLID, a special legislative statute change requested by the Board of Directors was passed into law in 1964. The District then acquired the former "Airman's Beach" (previously a part of Larson Air Force Base), from the General Services Administration in 1968. Airman's Beach was later renamed, Connelly Park.
Managed by the Moses Lake Irrigation and Rehabilitation District (MLIRD), Connelly Park is a favorite destination and family friendly location for recreation in the greater Moses Lake area. Fishermen from all over are greeted by the Park Attendant, often in the early dawn hours and boaters have open access to one of the area's favored boat launches during park hours.
Approximately 30,000 people visit the park each season from mid-April until November and areas of the park can be reserved for special occasions by coordinating with the MLIRD office. The park is located off Highway 17, just north of Moses Lake and west of the Grant County International Airport where you will find an oasis in beautiful Connelly Park, one of Grant County’s best kept secrets.
