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

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
