Blue Lake Regional park is located in Fairview, Oregon near the south bank of the Columbia River. It is 101 acres in size. And is open to the public from 8 am to Sunset.
There is a $5 fee for vehicles, but it is free to pedestrians and bicyclist. You can purchase a pre-paid day pass for $5 by phone or visiting the Blue Lake Park Office. The pre-paid day pass is good for one day access to Metro parks with a vehicle fee, including Blue Lake Regional Park and Oxbow park. A smart idea might be to use a pre-paid day pass to see Blue Lake park and Oxbow park in the same day.
I rode my bicycle into the park from a path next to Marine Drive. The park has covered and uncovered picnic areas, playing fields for softball and a basketball area. There are playground areas here and there for the kids. A nature gardens for them as well. There are also water related activities suck as swimming, boating, and fishing. I spotted several paddle boats at a dock area.
What I enjoyed were the wetland areas. I greatly enjoyed riding my bicycle on the paths that took me into the wetlands. There were structures here an there in the wooded area that took you over the water. There are several ponds in the wooded area that are crowded with lily pads. You can also see other wetland plants here like cattails. It was a very peaceful place to be. Kinda quite, lazy, and tranquil. For me this was the best feature of Blue Lake Park.
If you plan to come here often, they do offer annual passes for $40. Senior annual passes for $30 and annual passes for people with disabilities for $10.
