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

Great location. A part of Salem's history and past near the center of town. Art center and historic home with tours add to the experience. Adjacent to the athletic facillities of Willamette University.

This is a great place for a walk or run and is dog friendly. Be sure and check out the rose garden and Bush Barn. Bush Barn has changing art exhibits worth seeing. There are playgrounds for the kids and plenty of picnic tables.

If you want a nice walk where you can see squirels running everywhere come here. Just beware of the owls are dusk and early morning. I guess they like to attack sometimes.

Large city park centrally located, next to Salem Hospital and some main streets. But it's quiet and peaceful once you get within the park. Wonderful walking and running trails, lovely rose garden, old oak trees, and the Bush house museum and gardens add to the usual mix of picnic tables and playgrounds. The Salem Art Fair is held here each... More

Lovely grounds, a variety of paths and convient location make this a favorite of mine. In the summer, I like to ride my bike around the whole park and watch all the soccer and baseball games.

This is a great park that's used nearly 365. People are running, walking, strolling and picking routes tailored to their fitness. It's a big park with lots of variety and even a museum, shop and small art gallery. There are children's play areas, proper trails, fields and stairs. At any time of year, the park is displaying its seasonal beauty.

The park is fun, but it lacks diversity in tree's from other states and countries! No labeling system with the tree's like at the state capital in salem, also the capital has way more diversity in trees from other states and countries, also going south from Portland Oregon on i- 5 to salem Oregon there is a rest stop that...
