The eastbank esplanade runs north from OMSI (a good place to park) to several bridges north. You can walk or run or bike and access any of the bridges by stairs. A great place to see the wonderful portland skyline.

This is a nice place to walk or ride a bike on a warm day. In the winter it's cold with the wind. There are lots of views to take pictures along the way.

Great view of the city. you can walk or just sit. be careful of bikers though. They are ruthless but do give you warning. You can walk quite a distance along the river.
