  • We often stroll along the bike path near the Sellwood Bridge and visit this riverfront park. We would sit and watch the riverfront activities. There are always many dog owners exercising their dogs pl...  read more »
  • This is a small park that is a dog park. Look out for leftovers from the dogs and if you decide to sit down, make sure you have a blanket or a chair. It is a lovely little park and close to the river....  read more »
  • Wonderful morning setting out for a paddle from here. As we paddled along there were tons of dogs playing in the water fetching their sticks and just swimming. In the morning it's nice and shady here....  read more »
  • LOVE this place!! There is a great dog park with a plethora of dogs running about. There is a nice little low dock for which to let out on your kayak, canoe, paddleboard or what have you. It's a great place to swim with a pretty good beach with enough area for quite few sun worshipers and swimmers, maybe a .3 or .4 mile stretch. In the 3 times I have been, I have met with just some really cool Portland folks and Sellwood locals. If you're looking for any of the above fun water activities.. you got to come here!
  • This is a good park, right on the river. If you have a dog, you can bring them and let them off the leash to run around. There are some trails that go through the trees to little "secret" parts of the edge of the river that are like little mini beaches. There are less annoying bugs at this park than others (like Laurelhurst) to eat at your legs and such. There are some pretty good Pokestops here and when we went it was a Pikachu spawn point, though that might have changed with the latest nest shuffle.
  • Dogs are allowed off-leash and they are having fun EVERYWHERE (especially in the river). Families, couples, and people of all ages were hanging out here! A big grassy lawn and a path that leads you to the riverfront. Looks like several people have had fires here in the past, others brought picnic supplies, and even more others were out doing water sports. Views of Portland, the river, and Sellwood Bridge. Some spots along the water are rocky while others are more sandy. Trash cans are not present along the water. Can't believe I waited so long to visit!
  • Good place to sit by the water and unwind after a long day. Being right by omsi there's a nice bike path. Not much shade but usually a nice breeze.
  • I take my dog here as often as possible - she loves to be around the other dogs, kids, and happy river people. Wonderful that she can be off leash and play
