Blue Lake Park is in Fairview close to Portland and the surrounding areas. There is literally something for everyone. This is a perfect place for company picnics and family outings. You can fish, walk, rent paddle boats, swim or just lay around and relax. It's $5 to park the car which for me is reasonable given all the opportunities for a real fun day! I recommend you go for the day, basque in the sun and have a great day!

Large and beautiful park with many different areas. Swimming beach, fishing pier, multiple playgrounds/discovery areas, gardens, playing fields, wetland, splashpad and water play for the summer. Lots of reservable picnic/bbq areas. Newer, well-maintained bathrooms. This is going to be a favorite for us! Entrance is $5 per car.

I Love taking my grandchildren here, they get a kick out of it and for many this is their first time here. It does not take long for them to get the hang of it.
They have life preservers for every one to wear, which makes the parents feel like their children are very much safe. The staff here are very helpful, and will set you up for a fun experience.
This is a great memories for them, no matter what age they are !!!!!
