We've seen swans, ducks, geese, rabbits, snakes, birds, squirrels, and even deer at this beautiful park. I take the dog for walks there a couple times a week. From one end of the park to the other is approx 3 miles. At one end of the park is a beautiful view of Mt Hood in Oregon. At the other end... More

I always think what could be in Vancouver and then I stumble upon this park on the way to the doctors office. A wonderful neighborhood and a picturesque area with a pond. Areas for picnics, bird watching and strolling trails.

There is a trail that winds all along the woods in Salmon Creek. Ends at the big park. It's very relaxing occasionally you might see a blue heron . The site and sound of birds. And rushing Creek water along the rocks. There are park benches to sit and relax, and another park to barbecues, swim or have a family... More

Great park - it has everything you need for a park. We had family and church group gatherings. It has enough space to accommodate all. They have a pond, play ground for kids with fountains. We even went fishing with my son there. Good park! There are some scenery places too to take pictures.

This is a fairly large park with a pond for fishing and wading and a few things like a wading fountain for kids. It also has a really nice baseball set-up for little league games and some picnic areas too. There is a 3.5 mile walking trail paved with asphalt that takes a winding path through the park. There are... More

A wonderful place to hang out in the sun or sit in the shade. Lots of paved, wheelchair friendly trails to take long strolls and plenty of shade for hot days. A great swimming hole and lots of things for kids to do here. Very clean and family friendly. Pick up lunch at Chucks, nearby and have a picnic!!

This city park provides a perfect area for kiddos to run and play on the well constructed playscape, or for fishermen to fish the lake, or for walkers to take in the Salmon Creek green belt. The park has very good parking, and several distinct areas for playing, walking, or relaxing. The seasonal changes to the trees and plants make... More

This would fall into the category of "I'm reluctant to talk about it because it's our secret little place" except it's not so secret or so little. This is just a great (and pretty big) community park. With the entrance right under an I-5 underpass, the first impression may not be idyllic, but when they waive you past the old... More

Paved trails for walking/jogging/biking, a lake for fishing/swimming, and lovely picnic areas. Excellent parking that will support parties or just about any event.
