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...

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

This is a lovely area for a picnic, a walk or a romp with your dog. I saw bikers and joggers as well as people just enjoying the open air.
