This park is one of the jewels of the Salem Parks System. The bathrooms are most of the time clean, the grounds are well maintained and the attraction of the art museum on the campus is an added bonus. It is a great location to take all manner of professional photos as we have seen take place nearly every time... More

This is a great park right in the downtown area of Salem. Nice place to take the kids for a picnic. Let them run and play. And the rose garden is a must see.

We biked there and had a picnic and haven't had time to go back yet. It seemed like a very nice park and many people were enjoying using it.

I love the huge oak trees, watching squirrels, walking on the many paths, watching people play informal soccer or flag football, and the art fair in early July. This huge park includes an amazing array of plants in the greenhouse, a historic home with tours, tennis courts, baseball diamonds, play equipment, creek, soapbox derby hill. I like walking there and... More

Beautiful rose garden where you can literally "stop and smell the roses". I was in rose heaven. The lovely old Bush home is surrounded by this amazing rose garden as well as many other gardens, paved walking trails, fields for sports and picknicking and is home to more squirrels than I have seen in years. They were fun to observe.... More

My family ventured out to this park to take a little afternoon hike. Spent quite some time stomping around in the little creek that passes through it. Great way to spend a warm afternoon.

My hubby and I ventured here to take a run. The kids played on the playground and we took turns running. I was impressed with the beauty!

One of the best parks for running in Salem. The longest trail is 1.5 mile soft surface loop providing a nice view of this beautiful park. Theirs also a hill that's perfect for hill repeats (paved). Salem has many other amazing places to run. Check out www.oregonruns.com for other places to run in the Salem area.
