This park has lots to offer with a nice big pond and many walking paths. There is a separate park area for children to play and tennis courts. It’s a very relaxing and large urban park with plenty of parking.

This park was designed by Mr. Olmsted, the designer of Central Park in New York City, and it has the same feel. Pleasant walking paths around a lake, and some play areas too. If you want to delve deeper into park design and landscape architecture in the Portland area, look up a book called "The Legacy of Olmsted Brothers in Portland, Oregon."

With its little hidden off beaten tracks and ponds and ducks and autumn trees -- I'd never felt happier. It's also a 'green' friendly park, which makes the sunset across the lake that much more memorable.

This is a beautiful park - but as with most parks and public areas in Portland, it is home to many homeless people with mental health and/or substance abuse problems. Don't go alone.

This area of Portland is quite lovely. The old homes are absolutely stunning and worth the time to check out. Clean beautiful charming neighborhood without any riffraff. What Portland used to be like.

Lots of shade under mature trees so a great place on a summer day. Places you can tuck into for quiet or be in the middle of the action. Slightly rolling terrain adds some dimension to the park. Picnic tables can be reserved thru Parks & Recs for events. Note that sometimes there are some sketchy people hanging out so do keep an eye on the kids and your stuff. Enough of a loop around the park for a bike ride for the little kids. Kid playground is off to the side - maybe not as conveniently located as you may wish. Wish the bathroom situation was a bit better. If you picnic near the off leash dog area, expect stray visitors - it is not confined.
Parking is all street parking as this is definitely a neighborhood park.

I used to love coming here as a kid. I brought my own kids here from WI last week, & was SO disappointed with the amount of trash laying around the park, not to mention a hypodermic needle we saw laying next to the pond. Disgusted!

This small park is beautiful, magic and mysterious... I recommend visit in fall.
A gem that hasn't been discovered by tourists

Easy parking around the park with no time restrictions. Pathways are wide and entire park is clean. Lots of families and friendly people enjoying the outdoors. Nice small body of water which allows for various ducks and wildlife. Make a point to see this area and slow down the pace of life.

Watched Cinderella ( the original animated Disney version) in the park last month. Beautifully maintained. Nice sidewalks & lake walks. Lovely trees & native plants. Beautiful.
