Tuli Mem Park opened in May 2019. In 2001, a group of community volunteers, formally known as the Western Yolo Recreation Center Association (WYORCA), envisioned building a public swimming pool and recreational facility to serve the communities of the Capay Valley. The project gained footing in March 2012 with a $2.9 million grant from the California Department of Parks and Recreation. In 2015, via Proposition 218 proceedings, the community approved an assessment to help fund and support the park's maintenance and operations. Now, with additional monetary contributions from Yolo County, the Yocha Dehe Wintun nation and the Esparto Unified School District, and through the dedication and hard work of local residents and volunteers with WYORCA, the park is open to the public.
The park sits on 8.67 acres and is within walking distance of the high school and the elementary and middle schools in Esparto. The park boasts a wide array of amenities such as: a youth softball field, a soccer field, and a full outdoor basketball court; a pedestrian bridge, walking trail and a central gathering area with picnic tables; and a wading pool, eight-lane swimming pool and an aquatics building with restrooms, changing rooms, a meeting room, snack bar and indoor and outdoor showers.
