There are decent walking trails and great big trees if you want to find a place to cuddle or read a book. Right on the water, so lunchtime napping is great. Play area is fun for kids.

This is a really great wood built playground structure with many levels and layers for play. There is a sand area with diggers, swings and lots of fun. Outside there are several spray grounds to play in.

There are parts of the park that are well taken care of, but the rough roads don't make it seem like a nice place to visit. The potential for the park is great.

Nice park on the river. The weather was rainy when I was there, but it would be a fun place to rent a bike

The park is lovely and well maintained. The view of the Columbia River and the bridge are lovely. We go for the dog show every year and it is a great location.
