Pivot Point Interpretive Plaza
The outdoor exhibit area opened is located where Madison Avenue meets the river - the exact site where the first railroad train entered Arizona in 1877.
The plaza preserves one of the few remaining artifacts of the original rail line the concrete pivot on which the rail bridge turned to allow boats to pass.
But it's also a scenic outdoor museum, with colorful panels that explain the importance of the Yuma Crossing National Historic Landmark.
A stroll around the plaza is a walk through local history, sprinkled with lots of fascinating photographs and interesting stories about the Yuma Territorial Prison, Fort Yuma, the Ocean-to-Ocean Highway Bridge, the rope ferry, the Quechan Tribe, the Southern Pacific Hotel and more.
The multi-use pathway system along the riverfront connects to Pivot Point, plus there's a pedestrian link to Gateway Park. Bring a picnic and enjoy the view.
Pivot Point Interpretative Plaza is a city park, open daily from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m.
