Yuba Square Park (also called Yuba Park) is a Marysville city park comprising 4.2 acres. It is bounded on the north and south by East 10th Street and City Park Road, and on the east and west by Ramirez Street and Yuba Street. It features playground equipment and picnic tables.

A sewage pumping station is located inside Yuba Square Park, at the northwest corner of the park. As a result, a large portion of the park smells like sewage. The side of the sewage pumping station that faces Yuba Street features a mural that depicts two men panning for gold.
