  • This park is a great place to go and watch the water flow down the Deschutes River. There is a good walking path that goes around the river and back to the falls. Kids and pets have lots of fun; plent...  more »
  • The park's main feature is a creek set in a deep channel that has several pretty flows and cascades. A trail takes hikers down one side of the stream and back up the other. In several spots old salmon...  more »

  • Great path both foot & stroller friendly. We love visiting here even when it's a bit too wet/muddy for my kiddos little feet at other paths. Beautiful views, roaring water, fish, slugs and many beautiful wild flowers! This is a must visit for anyone wanting to gain a little history lesson of the area or see some nature on a casual walk. There is a bit of a slope downward to get to the end so it takes a bit of time and effort to get back up.
  • Has to be the most scenic spot in town. Great salmon spawning site in the early fall. Iconic and historical area, with multiple waterfalls along the shade covered walkway. Amazing amount of water flowing through the area a few months ago - look for videos online. We have found multiple FB rocks here.
  • Great walk anytime of year. Early spring brings rushing waters and raging falls, summer walks along the river are nice and cool, fall has the fish ladders full of salmon and beautiful colors, winter offers the perfect hike even in the rain. The mossy rocks, sprinkled with flowers and laced with small falls, a spot of sand to warm bare feet, peaceful sites for a picnic, a quick drawing or cat nap in the sun, it really is lovely.
  • We always stop here between Portland and Seattle. Toilets, clean picnic area and the falls. In season visit the fish ladder. Take a walk along the river, see the old brewery. The new one, next to the falls, is being developed.
  • Amazing park. Watching the rushing water cascade down the falls is amazingly‚Äč peaceful. In the fall the salmon can be seen working their way up stream. There is a nice place to explore at the end of the falls. It is also neat looking at the signage and related history of the Olympia brewery.
