  • 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.
  • Part of my routine jog from my neighborhood in Buckman. The pond is a nice place to cool off after a jog and watch the ducks swim. Towering Doug Fir trees and some nice foliage in Fall. Well maintained and clean. A great place for dogs,kids,and picnics. One of the must see places in Portland. Quite beautiful and peaceful.
  • I've been going here since I was little and I absolutely love sharing it with my son and family. It has something for everyone! Play structure, basketball court, tennis court, soccer field, wall ball court, and a dance studio on one side (the loud, active side). And the "quiet side" has winding paved pathways, a duck pond, wide open spaces to spreading out a blanket/play Frisbee/do yoga/hula hoop/draw/paint/or just be, a dog park area, picnic tables EVERYWHERE for reunions/birthday's/or just to sit. It really is a beautiful park in a beautiful neighborhood and a great place to take visitors or spend time with friends and family. I give it a 10/10
  • Beautiful park in the middle of South East Portland. Great pond to walk around and watch the ducks and birds. Good picnic area as well as plenty of grassy areas that you can lay out a blanket. Great place to spend a quite afternoon in the middle of the city.
  • When living in Portland, this was my walk to park several days a week. I loved it. This has a about a mile loop walking paved trail. The park is peaceful, with a small pond, and a few benches and picnic tables to sit and have lunch.
