Park Information

Sunwest Park is a recreational waterfront facility in northwest Pasco, just off of Hwy 19. The park has been developed around a former limestone mine, known locally as “SunWest Mines.” Gracing the shores of the 70 acre spring-fed lake you will find beautiful white sand that creates an unparalleled beach atmosphere.

With the gorgeous, natural setting, relaxing in the sun comes easy! For those who also want to participate in activities, The Lift Adventure Park offers a variety of amenities at Sunwest. From wake-boarding behind the cable system, to the Aqua Park and paddle boarding around the lake, The Lift provides fun on the water for the whole family.

No pets or alcohol are allowed at the park. No grills are allowed at the park.


There is a $5.00 per day parking fee. Use exact change at the parking pay machine to avoid being overcharged, as it will not provide any change, however, you can also use a credit card.
