  • Went for a walk here while in town for our son's wedding. The park has and excellent walking path along the Falls with beautiful plants and flowers. Highly recommended!  more »
  • Very Faery filled and peaceful even though traffic passes overhead. great place to just sit and listen to the water and feel nature surround and heal you.  more »
  • A very easy walkable park around part of the Dechutes River. However 1/4 of the walking path is not accessible to wheelchair recipients. All in all a good scenic park to walk young children and pets. ...  more »
  • Love this park for picnics and walks! It only gets 4 stars because most of the walk is paved (all of it up front) so we were unprepared for the section that was not easily navigated by my 8 y-o with a walker. We had to carry her and her walker. She still had a great time and we passed lots of others who had strollers and just carried them over breaks (2 cool large rock paths with holes between them, 1 longer section of unpaved dirt/roots/etc on an incline), so I still call it a great place as long as anyone needing wheeled assistance is light enough to be carried for a little bit. :) There is a small playground in the picnic area with large concrete/metal boats for kids to climb and play on.
  • 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.
  • Nice picnic area. Trail walk after food is the best. Two waterfalls. Can see Salmon jump during September- October time.
  • 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.
