Wonderful place to take guests after a meal to show off city waterfront, people watch, or visit carousel. Three big parks all connect through series of paths and bridges along the Willamette River. Walk, bike or take dogs on leash.

Love this place. Beautiful river side park with tons of walking. Go across the new bridge and enjoy the river, trees and information signs along the way. Fun summer offerings in the park for families! Every summer weekend festivals for all ages.

We were looking for parking at Riverfront for the canoe race. Although the park has ample parking area, it was soon filled for this huge even. We found the parking structure on 300 Commercial Street was great. It is free and only a block away...More
