My kids LOVE the playground here! Tons of spinning things, a play structure, & swings! I like sitting on the bench with pretty landscaping around! We had family pictures taken here in October & the roses were still going strong! A lovely location with lots to enjoy!

Breathtaking scenery amount the beautiful trees & natural paths. Nice park to explore, but small. Not big enough for a run, but worth a trip.

A great big park in the middle of Salem Oregon. Lots of area for running and biking and picnicing. Playground equipment for the kids. Soap box derby track and an annual art fair. Lots of stuff to do all year long.

The 89 acre park in the middle of downtown Salem is a great surprise. Bordered on the South side by Williamette University the park is very quiet and peaceful. There is a soap box derby track on the south side and 2 play areas for children as well as the Bush family house and rose garden.

Salem is fortunate to have a number of excellent parks and green spaces, and Bush's Pasture Park is near the head of the list. Walking and jogging paths (with slight elevation changes) traverse a variety of environments including meadow-like open spaces and woods. The park is quite large and encompasses several attractions, including the splendid Bush House and adjacent art... More

Large park close to down town. Good for picnics, jogging paths, walking, Bush Barn is on the premises, where young artists can display their talents. Bush house is a historic home on the park, which is free to tour

This may not be Central Park but it is very nicely laid out, allowing you to take a lovely evening stroll along the paths curving beneath the trees.

We love coming here to walk, view the gardens, admire the oak trees and attend wonderful events. For a city park, this is one of the best. Lots of walking paths for joggers and dog walkers. You can picnic here under the huge oak trees, as well. One of our favorite events held here is the Salem Art Fair in... More

We needed time to kill before our supper reservation, so we found this place and walked around. The rose garden was very nice and smelled amazing. The little gazebo was fun to sit under for a while.

This is a very large park. It offers a little bit of everything. There are horseshoe pits, playgrounds, and beautiful trees and gardens. One of the borders has a creek area. Pets do have to be on a leash, but there are lots of paths and running paths around the park. I love spring here, with all the different flowers... More
