Located near the historic "Ferry Street Bridge" and the Willamette River, this park is an attraction to those who enjoy wild waterfowl. It has a limited number of shelters but lots of open space for games and Frisbee. If you're in town to see Autzen Stadium it's also close by.

I grew up as this park was being built and it has only gotten better and better as time has gone by. Whether you want to run, walk, cycle or play friezbee golf, you can do it all here. Easy parking, restroom, water fountain and dog park. Good for family, couples and adults.

I love to hike through the many trails at Alton Baker Park all seasons of the year. There's a path by the Willamette River through the woods, also by the Millrace where people can rent a canoe. Runners enjoy Pre's Trail and you can also walk along a canal and enjoy the view of houses built by the water. You... More

You have to know how to get to this place to find it; it's a little tucked away. But for a center-of-the-city park, it is a gem. For starters, there is a serene pond with stepping stones out to its center. There is a pedestrian bridge that slopes up over the lovely Willamette River as it rushes through town. If... More

Alton Baker Park is a runner, walker, or biker's delight, and a great place for a solitary or family picnic. Situated by the Willamette River, there is open grassy area and also a number of paths to chose from, all of them scenic. You can watch the ducks, spot blue herons and other wildlife, pick blackberries, enjoy the wildflowers and... More

Took a large group of children and youth to explore the butterfly garden. Not a single map on-line or on-site that identifies location of designated areas except disc golf and Kalapuya Stones. Love the park but frustrated with poor signage.
