I had the opportunity to visit the Dance Pavillion for a Plucky Maidens "junk show" on Sunday. I forgot how much I loved the setting for Oaks Park. Just beautiful, on the river. And quaint, an Portland fixture for nearly a century. I didn't ride any rides, but did enjoy being at the Park.

Well, it's basically a traveling carnival that doesn't travel at all. The standard cheesy rides and a few other attractions, and don't forget the overpriced gut-busting food. I can't imagine anyone over 11 years old actually enjoying this dated, worn down facility. The good thing about it is it is much less expensive than a real theme park. That being... More

Fun for the kids. Some of the workers are a little scary for the smaller kids. The park has a lot of history. Was always told the roller rink can float if there is a floods.

As a child, it was fun. Now, not so much. Boring rides, weirdos, crappy food choices, nothing to really amuse.

Step back in time to the timeless midway with an assortment of old and new rides and games. Great for the family and large groups for picnic gathering. They also an old fashion skating rink and dance hall.

I first went to this park on a school outing as a teacher. There is a great picnic area for large groups. We all paid for a wristband for rides. There is a roller rink too. But when I last went there the roller skates were the old fashioned, four wheeler Flintstones kind! Hope they have modern roller blades now.... More

Glad you had a good time! Our skating floor is actually a 100' x 200' antique maple with Roll-On coating. And we surely do have inline skates in several styles. More
