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.

Bush Park has lots of paths for walking, riding bikes, jogging and lots of place to fly kites, throw balls, have family picnics and just enjoy being in a park. There are restrooms, tennis courts, a soapbox derby track, which roller blading and skateboarding folks also enjoy when it is not hosting a derby, and several areas that have play... More

The park has just about everything: Willamette University's football field/stadium, the Bush Barn Art Gallery and studio, lovely formal gardens, natural areas and the site of the annual Salem Art Festival--one of the West's best summer festivals. Very close to downtown Salem.

A great place to play, walk, and take the family. We go almost very weekend and during the summer it can be a daily thing. Kids love it

The Bush Park running/jogging/walking path has an outer loop and inner loop, about two miles in all through woods and beside former pastures. It is designed to be an all-weather trail, topped with a soft matting of shredded cedar over fine gravel in most areas. Great exercise in a pastoral urban setting.
