Nice trail system, well marked and you can vary your walk, ride or run depending on time and mood. The park is close and offers trails of different lengths, good birding early and late in the day.

I have visited the Minto Brown Park numerous times and always enjoy it. I have forgotten how many miles of trails are there but they have a lot. They also have a fun dog park there. I enjoy the trails that go beside the Willamette River. It is good to look at a map first so you don't get lost.

What a wonderful park along the Willamette River. It's easy to forget that you're in an urban setting when you head to Minto Brown Park. We have enjoyed hiking and roller blading the trails, many people bike the trails and there are oodles of black berries for the picking in early fall. For younger kids there's a play area, and...

This park is tucked away on the Willamette River. Just off River Rd. south you will find this park with nature trails and a sprawling area for dogs. Most all the trails are paved for riding your bike. I took my daughter's grad pictures here and they were amazing You can walk down to the river's edge or stroll past... More

I wish I lived closer. This park was so pretty and has great trails for walking and running. The maps are everywhere so you can't really get lost. The views are spectacular. We had a great time exploring the park, seeing the geese, listening to the sounds and enjoying nature. It was a great start to our day!

We have been to the park several times to bike and to pick wild blackberries. The staff are friendly and courteous and the paved multi-use trail is wonderful. Just wish it was longer! Would love to see the bridge built between this park and Riverside.

Hubby and I are there three days a week for our power walk.....and to dog-watch. So many beautiful, friendly doggies (we have a fat lazy cat) and the walking paths are awesome! I have walked alone in the mornings when hubby was at work - and feel pretty safe although I walk along the main road when alone. The paths... More
