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.

This park has everything for the person who enjoys nature. Plenty of paved trails, leash free dog area, wild flowers, and wild life. Several unsaved trails for the adventurer as well.

This is an island that is mostly underwater in the winter. It is a terrific late spring, summer, fall spot for families who like to walk, jog, ride bikes, roller blade, walk dogs, and be active outdoors. There are farm stands to buy fresh produce in the summer and lots of nice views of the and countryside.

Sited along the banks of the Willamette River and an adjoining slough, most of the park has been left as natural area. Great birding for water birds, osprey, Bald Eagles. Lots of walking/bike paths, and even an off-leash dog exercise area.

There's also an off leash dog park for your dogs to play in. There are picnic tables for your parties, portable toilets, and miles of jogging or walking paths. In August you can pick... More

Keeping in mind that this is a rainy area, the off leash dog area is large and a great place for a high energy spaniel to stretch his legs. On some trips this will equate to a muddy dog, so just be prepared.
