I've passed this park dozens of times but never stopped in. On this day, I had been through a fast food drive-thru and decided to eat my sandwich here since it was a bright sunny winter's day.
There is plenty of parking and many of the spaces are angled so you can see the Willamette River from your car. I was one of several people eating lunch in their cars whilst looking at the river - I suspect that this park is quite a popular place for locals to relax and enjoy their lunch!
There were a lot of picnic tables stacked up so they probably set them out for the summer. There are restrooms, but they were locked so they too are probably open only during summer.
Although I did not take the time to explore the walking trails, I saw several people (some with their dogs) arrive, park, and head along the trail to the north.
This park is open during daylight hours only.
