Miles of trails for walking, huge dog park area, picnicking, and plenty of wildlife. Stroll along the river and through the forest in a very peaceful setting.

Awesome spot to walk or bike. Beautiful spot, feels remote, but walkable from downtown over the new pedestrian bridge. Excellent spot to ride your bike or walk a dog. One of my favorite spots in Salem

Minto Island park is a great place to walk or ride your bicycle around. It also has a big dog park area. However the dog park isn't fenced so not a good park if your dog wants to run off.

With the opening of the Peter Courtney Bridge last summer, Minto Brown Island Park is even better than before. This relatively undeveloped urban park is a birder's paradise, and it is now connected by paved trails to the Riverfront Park in downtown Salem as well...More

This is a great place for an easy flat run, through a mix of woodlands, riverbank, and meadows. There are frequent trail signs and maps, and the trail distances are labeled. Most of the trails are paved, but I found a few softer dirt segments....More
