A good place for a stroll

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

This park is literally an oasis in the middle of town. We loved strolling through the rose garden area and the park trails. The park is clean, safe and dog friendly (on leash).

My wife and I just visited the annual Art Festival in this lovely park...our first time in Salem (despite living in nearby Portland for over 15 years!). What a nice place - so many shade trees, walking paths, and places to sit & picnic. We saw the historic Bush home and barn and McCulloch Stadium (Willamette University's track & football... More

We visited this park during our vacation. It is one of Oregon's many beautiful parks. This is a nice playground, great bike path, rose garden, and many paths.

I had a nice time walking through the rose gardens, art gallery, and past the modern playground where several families were picnicking with families. The park is relaxing and feels safe with several benches in the sun with both paved and grassy paths for walking.

I found this park by accident, it looks very beautiful,nice and well kept. The only downside was the homeless guy sleeping at the park by the trail, so it made me feel a little bit unsafe. I do feel bad for the homeless guy at the park, everybody deserves to have a decent living condition in life, at least he... More
