  • Great storm watching location. The wind blowing through the tall tower is quite relaxing. Signs indicate a portable toilet will be in place soon.
  • Off leash dog park down the hill Great views and breeze or wind. Parking depends on how busy the park is, trailers and long vehicles may have trouble with the roads getting to the park. Four good pokestops and a gym with good spawns.
  • Nice place to walk up to if you live near by. Views are good in multiple directions. Usually just stop for a bit on the walk. Not really a place to spend a lot of time. If driving be sure to park legally. Especially, if you arrive after the park closes (can be good for night based viewing events)
  • Best views in Portland - weather permitting of course. There's a secret spot in the center of the stone circle next to the water tank, where you get an interesting sound effect.
  • While the park is small and the trails are not long. They do extend to other parks and the views are amazing! I recommend parking near SW Fairmount Blvd and SW Talbot Terrace and walking the trail up to the park. It is a much better way to experience the views than trying to find a parking spot. The grand trees are better introduction to the mountain views than a bunch of park traffic.
