#143 of 146 in Nature in Oregon
Blue Lake Regional Park is a public park in Fairview, in the U.S. state of Oregon. The 101acre park, near the south shore of the Columbia River in Multnomah County, includes many covered and uncovered picnic areas, playing fields for sports such as softball, and infrastructure related to lake recreation including swimming, boating, and fishing. Encompassing wooded areas, three ponds, and a wetland in addition to the lake, the park is frequented by migrating birds and other wildlife. Paved paths run through the park, which is near the 40 Mile Loop hiking and biking trail. Park vegetation includes cottonwoods, willows, and other trees and shrubs as well as wetland plants such as cattails.The 61acre lake, which lies in a small artificial drainage basin, has no natural inlet or outlet. Water normally enters the lake only from rain, surface runoff, and groundwater seepage. Excessive aquatic plant life and algae have sometimes restricted the use of the lake, and its maintenance includes plant control and addition of fresh water from municipal wells.

  • This park is the best one that I have been to so far. There is a lake with a roped off swimming area and a water park. There is a garden next to the water park where you can learn a lot about the local plants that grow in the area. It is a park full of fun and relaxation. A fun place to picnic and BBQ.
  • Love the big, wild splash pad here for the kids! Boat rentals (canoes and paddle boats) are reasonably priced, and in fair to good condition. Metro parks pass is a great investment for spending time at both Blue Lake and Oxbow.
  • Pretty park next to the lake. Swimming area and splash pad. Lots of room for large picnics and gatherings. Their Independence Day celebration ends with a spectacular fireworks display.
  • Great park to go run in. You have to pay to get in if you don't have a park pass. I will gladly pay to go since it keeps the riff raff out of the park. No smoking, no drinking, no acting like an idiot. Great place to go!
  • Enjoyed blue lake for first time. The paddle boats was really fun. Next time I'll wear a sun hat because it was hootttt. The bathrooms were surprisingly clean. Trying to find parking wasn't that bad. Kids had fun.
