  • Really beautiful place to walk and enjoy some wide open green space. Lots of spaces to walk dogs, let kids run and play, fun carousel and gift shop. They were working on a new walking bridge when we visited. It will be cool to come back and see it finished when they're done.
  • I love walking around the park, the kids love playing on the play ground and riding the carousal. I can't wait for the bridge to be finished. I miss the globe.
  • It's green space surrounding Keizer's water treatment plant is a great place to get out, stretch your legs, or walk your dog. Summer months there's a fountain to romp in and there's a very large playground and swings. It's a nice place to visit along the Willamette River.
  • Beautiful area, we'll maintained and lots of places to walk and picnic. It's dog friendly, and lots of families will come for the indoor carousel and popcorn too.
  • Nice park with river access, merry go round amd play area with a soo. To be opened bridge to miles of walking trails.
