  • This is a beautiful park - but as with most parks and public areas in Portland, it is home to many homeless people with mental health and/or substance abuse problems. Don't go alone.  more »

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • A beautiful neighborhood park. I usually blow giant bubbles or juggle, but great place to get your jogging in, picnic, or play catch with your pooch. Currently having issues between indigent who have set up camp on it's outskirts and rich folk who have gentrified the area even more than what it used to be.
  • Such a special place to go and feel a connection to nature while still only about 40 blocks and a river away from downtown Portland. Lots of fun events and people here often too including music, movies, and silent discos. I would love to throw a frisbee with you ~ so I will met you there!
  • This park is huge. Your dog will defiantly be tempted to jump into the small duck lake. Surprisingly, despite it being an off leash park, to my observations, there isn't that much dog poo to accidentally step into. Really helps that they have a few doggy bag posts and a decent amount of trash cans. It's a beautiful walk but you've got some regular types you see here. Stoner bench and homeless lounging by the horse shoe lanes. Local events are held here, occasionally a field trip group, maybe even some television filming.
