Central Park is a one block area on the west end of downtown. If you are visiting Corvallis and need a break for awhile or a place to have an outdoor lunch, this is one option. There is plenty of open grassy space and some playground equipment for kids to burn off energy. What I find less appealing about Central Park is that it may also bring you the recognition that Corvallis has a homeless issue. It would not be surprising to encounter some homeless folks hanging out in the corner of the park near 6th and Madison. I used to like walking through Central Park in the early morning and sometimes early evening (after dark) but don't feel so comfortable doing that anymore. A good place to spend some down time if you are in the downtown area for an afternoon is the area around the Courthouse at 4th and Monroe (a few blocks from Central Park). There are benches and shade there for a break from a warm summer afternoon.
