A completely unimpressive city park next to a trashy river and a crappy freeway. Watch out for needles, tent cities, and turds floating down the river.

Nice park in downtown Salem on the river. It’s always nice to stroll the walking paths past the Gilbert house museum, the riverboat and the carousel. For a couple months during the winter there is an ice skating rink. In summer there are special events...More

Bring your pup and socialize while you both enjoy the beautiful and well cared for park. Always lots of friendly pups with their peeps. The bridge that links the park to Minto Brown is beautiful and well traveled. A lease for your pup is essential...More

This park is just a nice place to relax. It is great for jogging, biking, or just a simple walk. It is also a pet friendly area.

A really nice park for walking, jogging or just enjoying. Dog friendly with bags and bins handy. Safe childrens' play area and clean, well maintained toilets with disabled facilities. If you want to venture further the new bridge will take you across the Willamette River...More

The park is wonderful, but now with the pedestrian bridge it allows transients to set up homeless camps and they are not safe! Recently, a young woman was attacked at knife point near the pedestrian bridge. I love the park, but its becoming unsafe.
