  • Beautiful park full of gorgeous old trees, a duck pond, benches and tables, foot and bike paths. Landscape is lovely and relaxing. It's the prefect get away in the city. The trees are so large and old it does not feel like you're in densely populated area. Perfect place for a stroll, pick-nick, gathering, or just to unwind. There are vintage style street lamps along the paths that light up at dusk, very pretty.
  • Beautiful w the proverbial duck pond for the kids to feed. Actually don't feed the ducks it only fouls the water. That being said .....There is a part of the park in which you can allow your dog to have fun playin w other dogs.or just throw him a ball. Lg. Park. ..lots of trails.....dog park......Large playground for the kids. Hey what more can ya ask for in a city park.
  • This is the place to be in the summer. Lots of events lots of people very chill and easy to hang out place. Also feels very safe without having to worry like a big city.

  • Such an amazing neighborhood park. I visit it daily for exercise and absolutely love the big trees and awesome flowers. The paths are always clear and the park is well kept up. Lots of grassy areas to play ball and let the dogs roam.

Where to stay in Portland

For easy foot access to Portland's best shopping, dining, and entertainment, stay in or around the downtown area, connected to the rest of the city by light rail. This compact and busy part of Portland contains the highest concentration of hotel rooms in the city, allowing you to explore options ranging from boutique properties to big chains. Thanks to Portland's convenient transportation system, you can also choose a less expensive motel or bed and breakfast in one of the outlying neighborhoods, and still be within minutes of most major tourist attractions.
