We love to visit the park pretty much anytime of the year, but the spring and fall are the best. It is located next to the Willamette river and offers great trail for running, walking, or biking.

Minto-Brown just opened its new foot and bicycle bridge from Riverfront Park. The bridge is gorgeous and adds so much to the ambiance. Now I can walk to the island from my house. This is going to be a great summer.

Desperate dog park area. Miles and miles of trail systems. Great spots along the river. Great for birthday parties. Lots of parking. Beautiful scenery. Don't recommend going late. A little scary out around dark. Lots of crime at night

This is a great place for some rest and relaxation! It is a great place for a picnic, a nice walk in God's beauty or a bike ride!

I love this place. This is a great place to walk alone or with friends, even when the weather isn't ideal. There are so many paths, I still haven't found every single one. The only unfortunate thing is that it often floods.

While we're not dog owners (we have 2 cats) we thoroughly enjoyed a sunny Saturday stroll on the nicely paved trails. Watching all the dogs enjoy themselves was therapeutic. It's been so grey lately that this little getaway was perfect!

Yes there are a few, I believe, down by the children's playground area all the way at the end of the road near the river.
