Life at the Park. AMAZING!
May 2020 • Friends
There are many interesting people who I have met down at the Cascades Gateway Park in Salem Oregon. I have met alot of them. The people there is why I still go there and stay for days on end. I have not had anything terrible happen to me for being down there. Maybe I am crazy say that if you wish but I feel totally safe walking around anytime of the day or night alone. It's been a AMAZING EXPERIENCE with the people and time I've been there and I plan to stay there for a good time longer. I took the time to get to know everyone I come in contact with. If only others wouldn't be so afraid. Many people are not afraid and many people take their children to the park. I see families alot. I've never been scared to do what I need to and the people are very helpful.

City park shocker!
Jul 2020 • Family
I took my grandson to go fishing at this once beautiful park today. As we entered the area, we were immediately overwhelmed by the homeless camps, and I counted over 30 vehicles full of garbage and people. The city has let this park go to hell. I have been to third world countries that show more pride in their communities. This area needs to be cleared out and completely gutted. Do our city officials know or care about anything? What a waste of tax dollars. Please do not go here. It will make you sick. Why are the cities just giving these areas to the homeless?? Salem has gone to hell!! Really feel sorry for the children.

Disgusting
Jul 2020 • Solo
This place used to be a great place to take your kids fishing or to the playground and boy has that changed... Shame on you city of salem for allowing this place to become dangerous and not to mention a disgusting mess.. i was there a week ago to enjoy ank afternoon of fishing and turned back.. Is this how our tax dollars are spent? I spoke to a city worker and a police officer that was there for the safety of the city workers and ask them when this was going to be cleaned up cause it was horrible to see... The both of them basically threw there hands up and said they were just as disgusted as I... Its time city of salem to get this mess cleaned up and take care of our parks...

Homeless Park
May 2020
The City of Salem has seen fir to turn this park into a homeless camp. It’s absolutely ruined. Do NOT take your dogs or your children to this area. The area is extremely dirty, crime in the area has gone up significantly and I’m sure the dogs living with the homeless population are not vaccinated! STAY AWAY!

The ducks made me so very sad
Mar 2020 • Couples
There was a group of ducks that were picking on one poor duck, they were all biting him and ripping his feathers out and I tried to stop them for a good 15 minutes and I ended up running out of breathe ...I couldn't save him. 😭😭😭😡😡🤬🤬

Not for families

Very run down and a few groups of homeless people camping that make it not ideal for families to hang out there

Hot Oregon Afternoon
Aug 2018 • Family
This is an experience of a life time with my family. The park is large with tall trees, there is a lake with all kinds of birds, you can feed the birds and also a river runs through the park. The west end is noisy because if the highway. There are green sits in the park to sit on. The grass is well maintained and it cozy to relax here during a hot Oregon afternoon sun. Glad i visited.

Fenced dog park area.
Nov 2017 • Family
Finding dog parts for them to run free with little worry is not well known. This one has voth a large dog fenced area and a small dog fenced area. Its grass, has a picnicking table and no trees but, its a start.
When you first come into the park its on your left side.

Kind of a Dump, but it has Disc Golf
Dec 2016 • Couples
I go here because it's a Pokémon Go nest periodically. There's a slough or pond that people fish in. There are quite a few picnic areas. You can hear traffic from I-5 which is about 100 yards away. The parking lot is 75% potholes. There are often old RVs parked around which makes it seem like you're at a run-down RV park. The disc golf course looks pretty nice. There aren't many of those in Salem. It's close to the parking in case you worry about your car when it's parked there, you can see it from the entire course.
