“See locals enjoy their city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

Great path for walking along the river. Neat bridges, some boats to see, good people watching. Lots of cyclists; bike rentals and multi-person bike contraptions to rent. Tour boat, also. Also a lot of street people sleeping but no problem with them. Fun water features to play in on a hot summer day.

“nice park to visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

I went there last year during the month of June after the Rose Festival was over with. It was nice. There is so much to see and water fountains that you can play in. The river runs right next to it and there are lots of trees throughout the park. I would love to go there when the spring blossoms are out. I didn't visit in September, but it didn't go back that far.

“Nice waterfront”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

I visited the waterfront park several times while in Portland. A great place to run, walk or bike, it is also nice place to relax and enjoy the outdoors or people watch. The park is always busy, and there are lots of shops and restaurants nearby.
