Just a stone throw's away from our hotel. Walking alongside the Williamette River. The path fairly easy and flat. Great for kids...playground area with lots to do and see. Check out the archeological pit and do your own digging!

I enjoy coming to this park when I am in town to visit my grandmother. River runs through it and its got lots of beautiful tree. Areas to swim during the summer and the park is very large. I've heard the fishing is great here as well. I actually just did some professional photos with family and that was the... More

When I walked along the River Walk, I ended up in Alton Baker Park a few times. It was a nice park, and I found a special spot where I could hear the rush of the river and really relax.

I walk through the park when I go to Oregon football games. That's fat lest 6 times a year. I go see concerts at the amphitheater every summer. I've biked, fished, swam (your not allowed to do this) walked, hung out, thrown a frisbee... Ok you see where I'm going. This park is a short walk from downtown. It's large,... More

We were in town for the MSU Spartans v the Oregon Ducks football game and were looking for a place to run. The hotel recommended the Alton Baker Park. It is close to the football stadium and was a few miles from the hotel. We drove over and parked our car. The trail is well marked and goes along the... More

I spent 5 hours here walking along the river while my car was being serviced. There are great places to sit and people watch or read a book.

This park is so beautiful and conveniently located, it's too bad I can't visit it often. Frankly, the number of ducks and geese there has grown completely out of control. They need to thin the heard by 80% (at least). Duck and goose poop cover so many of the walking surfaces; it's disgusting. It just turns me off, so I... More

Lots to see and do here. Hiking, biking, kayaking, bridges, ducks, geese, frisbee golf, gardens, nature center, special events, water features, islands, sculptures, and other things I'm sure I missed as I was only there one day!
