  • After a meal in Sellwood, we headed over to SE Spokane, parked at the end of the road, and walked along the trails, making our way towards Oaks Bottom. There's enough room that you can dodge the dog walkers, runners and other athletic events, and still focus on your conversation. Would suggest taking this walk on a summer or late spring night when you have more light ... and can easily find your way back to the car. From this vantage point, you can also take a few minutes to walk under the Sellwood bridge which is a bit spooky and fascinating.
  • Great place to relax and enjoy the day! You can swim here on a warm day. Portland OR has the best parks of anywhere I have ever been. Get out and enjoy!!!
  • I often walk the area when I need a change of scenary. After I did this I walked down to SE Spokane to stroll around Sellwood Waterfront Park. It's always a good walk, rain or shine. You will be able to see the sign for oaks park pointing the way. It is also next to the bicycle and pedestrian path that leads to Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge and also to the Springwater Corridor. So you can get here by using that if you are into getting a bit of healthy physical activity. Wait for a sunny day to do that. You will like the waterfront dock. I strolled out on that and found this was an excellent place to take photographs of the Sellwood Bridge. There was a boat anchored in the water in the foreground and that added so much to the shot. Take your time walking around the trails. One trail loops around a pond that claims to have a rare frog that resides in the pond. I didn't see it. The walk around the pond was nice and there is a wood bridge that spans over the marshy pond area. So you have that walking on water feel sans biblical plaque of frogs. So this park is sandwiched between the Sellwood Bridge to the south and Oaks Park to the north. With the Willamette River lapping on its western shore. What more could you ask for.
  • Wonderful place for off leash fun! The waterfront is beautiful and the trails behind it are nice. One of my favorite places to take my pup.
  • So many things are great about this amazing South Portland park. For one, it is huge, with lots of great trails, paved and not, all with a view of the river. There's a boat dock for day use, with a view of the city upriver that is breathtaking. Want to see Portland from a rare perspective? Check out that dock!
