“Great with Much to Do”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

I love this park. Great to run in...on the street or in the woods. Paddleboats. Places to have weddings, picnics, birthday parties. Places for the kids to feed ducks and playgrounds. This park has a little of everything

“Hiking/ biking/ nature/ & swimming”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

This is a city park that feels more like a state park. The trails are well marked. The reservoir is restful (and wet) (well not htis year, we are in a draught!) They teach boating and rowing here. You can rent space for events ( I went to a stunning wedding at the Gazebo). Even work retreats are less painful in this kind of a setting.

“Hiddew jewel”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

This park is an oasis just outside the city. Plenty of hiking/ jogging trails and the roads are never busy so a great place to run.

The picnic areas have a lot of hidden playgrounds which kids love and there are plenty of places to drop in a line for fishing.

Not a fan of the beach but still nice to have.

“One of the better urban parks you'll find...”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

My wife and I live near Eagle Creek Park and visit there frequently. We have always loved taking our dog for walks there. Entry fee is a very reasonable $5. We usually drive back into the park a while, park, and walk back to the bird sanctuary, a long land bridge the cuts between Eagle Creek Reservoir and Eagle Creek...very beautiful. If you're looking for a little nature and some good hiking, Eagle Creek is a great place to check out without having to leave the city.

“Great for Fishing, Relaxation, and Play”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

We really liked that this park offered several locations to fish. We chose a smaller area because we didn't want to disturb any die hard fishermen. Our sons enjoyed their first real fishing outing largely due to the bench seating offered in the park. While we were here solely for fishing this time; we'll definitely be back to enjoy the beach, parks, and hiking trails. Well worth the $5 USD gate fee.
