Popular spot for photos and weddings. Beautiful all seasons. I love all the wildlife, but beware there is a lot of goose poop!

This is a great park for a walk nearly any time of day. I have enjoyed seeing a variety of wildlife as well as the variety of paths, pond areas, and vegetation. This park has a number of great spots for portraits, both casual and more formal, too. The key is to make an exploration trip to the park to... More

A friend and I went to the Kathryn Albertson Park because traffic was blocking the entrance to the Ann Morrison Park across the street. The park doesn't look like much from the street or parking lot, but that is only because the beautiful place is hidden by trees. This park is considered a nature preserve and is an amazing place...

This is a beautiful park. Every time I go, there are people having their photos taken by the pretty foliage. I like to go for the birding which is pretty darn good. Some of the ponds were coated with ice, today, I saw a belted Kingfisher, Wood ducks, Cooper's hawk, mallards, robins,tons of Canadian geese...you get the idea. Nice sidewalks... More

Great park to take stroll, walk or run. Beautiful area to get married. Lots of wildlife - birds, deer, raccoons and chickens. A must see area.

Kathryn Albertson park is great for birders. I have seen a myriad of bird species within the confines of this park including a Western Screech Owl, Hooded Merganser, Merlin, and so many others. It's a wonderful loop, mature trees run along the stone paths with several benches along the way to stop and absorb your surroundings.

The park is full of mature trees and wild birds. The paths are paved, so it's perfect for strollers or wheel chairs.

This park is dedicated to nature and wildlife. It is mostly a wetland so there are lots of waterfowl. It is a lovely place to stroll around and enjoy the solitude in the middle of a city.

There are winding paths throughout this park with hewn stone benches, placards detailing the birds and local wildlife, and a host of ponds and pleasant scenery. We ran across deer here not 10 feet from the path, watched wood ducks toddle down to their personal lilypad-clad pool, and watched people chase geese. This is amusing two ways: One, the geese...
