  • I love this place, been coming here since I can remember.some of my best memories, being with family and friends.30+ years seems like nothing, like it was only yesterday. Brings a tear thinking about it, wish I had kids to take there, highly recommend it. To walk around, picnic, feed duck play, BBQ, just anything really. It'll make and leave memories for a life time
  • What A true gem for the neighborhood and beyond. A beautiful natural setting in a very Urban community. A small lake for many variety of ducks and geese. Massive trees to bend your neck back for a good stretch. Plenty of room to let the dogs off leash. A loop trail to walk the entire perimeter of the park. Bathrooms and picnic areas everywhere. I come here constantly to get away.
  • This is a great place to walk your dog. Many dog owners usually and a newer playground for the kids. Lots of homeless people. I felt scared walking past the homeless drug addicts. Don't take your eyes off the kids! Pack your concealed weapon and an extra magazine!
  • Very relaxing park. My daughter resides in Portland and text us to this park and it's beautiful. We love to stroll around and relax. Nice Lake and usually friendly people and sometimes music in the park. The great place to unwind.
  • The makings of an awesome park woefully underfunded. Terrible fencing and yellow temp fencing ruins photos and enjoyment of nature around half of pond. Dog play area wonderful and community is great...but needs regular lawn maintenance..not once in a decade. Kid play areas and use by neighbors is above average. Events in park wonderful. Easy to bus, walk, or bike there.
