We stopped here after lunch to walk our dog and this park is wonderful. It was very big with lots of squirrels and trees. BUT there was a lot of trash that I saw. And some sketchy people.
I was looking for a nice playground for my 5 years old and he was really happy about this one. Overall, it's a nice park, a bit similar to Parc Lafontaine in Montréal but less crowded.
This generally well-lighted and well-tended 55-acre (22-hectare) urban public park was designed in 1879. It lies within I-295 and Deering, Park, and Forest Avenues. It’s just a short walk or drive from downtown and hosts a farmer’s market and numerous regularly scheduled public events. Among its many family-friendly amenities are a castle, public restrooms, sidewalks, walking paths, a concrete footbridge,... More
It offers alot of nice outdoor activities. During the day is a great place and you can feed the ducks at the duck motel in the middle of the pond! once it starts getting dark I would not feel safe walking around this area.
This place definitely resembles a mini-Central Park-- and no wonder: it was designed by the same architect. But seriously this place is serene, and offers a duck pond, a water fall, ancient trees, and the coolest winter tree lights. The Rose Garden across from the pond has almost every known species of rose.
This park is great during the day, especially if you have kids. There are playground, paths to walk and even a pond to feed the ducks. I would just reccomend not going at night, homeless people- and drug addicts take over after dusk.
This park offers a large area of peace and tranquility right in the center of Portland, Miane. There are scenic pathways for walking and bicycling, ponds and fountains, and a colorful tourist office within the park's boundaries. There are several fine restaurants located just a few steps from the park.
Deering Oaks Park is pretty great, for the most part -- but the wandering bums and drug addicts don't make it pleasant every time. Plus some parts of it can be pretty dirty, with the grass covered with trash and goose poop. Gross.
