Brannan Park contains one of Auburn's most heavily used sports complexes. The City sponsors many sports events at Brannan Park; Cascade Middle School users and a variety of organizations - youth soccer leagues, Little League - also use the playing fields extensively. Brannan Park is on a flat, open site, with the Green River forming the park's eastern boundary. There is a loop trail within the park that will eventually connect to the Green River Trail. The remaining sides are bounded by residential housing, which is highly visible from the park.

Park History:
Named after the families of brothers William and Joseph Brannan who homesteaded in the White River Valley in the mid 1800s. William Brannan and his wife were killed during the early Indian wars. Joseph married Sarah Henness in 1857. They purchased the Meeker Farm in Kent in 1858, and finally moved to their donation claim near Auburn in 1868. The park was dedicated in 1966.
