Great Fun for Kids of all Ages
Sep 2019
Attended Oktoberfest and although it was extremely crowded, we still had a fun time. The activities were well planned and had something for everyone. Food lines and adult beverage lines were ridiculous so we chose not to go to the "big tent" for that, but they had other places for food and drink. Putt Putt Golf was expensive, but fun!

A Rollicking good time!

You can choose to ride rides or rollerskate here. It is set in beautiful grounds along the Willamette River. Take the small train for a charming ride. The Carousel and Ferris Wheel are both a must. New features being added all the time.

Oaks Carnival park? Nothing amusing about it!
Jul 2019 • Family
I came here on 7/30/19 for the first time with my family. It was Tuesday buy one get one free unlimited ride bracelet day, and selected buy one get one free food items. The price was right but very crowded for a Tuesday. The park was clean and the staff was friendly.

About the rides, Carnival rides at best other than the purple coaster on the end. I think I road all of these same rides at the State Fair last year. They need new modern amusement rides. For the longest continuously running amusement park, you would think they could expand there park and get some bigger coaster rides like Six Flags or Silverwood amusement park has to offer. I would even pay more to have better rides in the park! I did not visit the roller skating rink during my visit. It wss closed for an event.

I stood in long lines for the concession stand for food. I had the 2 for 1 hotdogs and corndogs, I also had the curly fries, onion rings, and purchased a souvenir drink cup that had free refills. If you want to stand in long lines to get a refill. Very disorganized food stand. But the food was good though! I think more food options like sit down table service restaurant, or even a buffet which would go good. Something in the Dance pavilion would be a great place for a restaurant.

After receiving our food we found there was no place to sit. There was people just sitting at the tables not eating just sitting at them so no one else could take there spot, reserving them for birthday parties and families coming to sit down and cool off and have a covered place to sit and also a teenager hangout spot.

There shouldn't be any loitering at the tables so others can have lunch or dinner with famlies. Don't the park have security there and they haven't seen the problem there and all over the park with the teenage loitering???

They definantly need to either get more tables to eat at, or open the gates for the picnic tables in Area #1 the reserved picnic area across the railroad tracks when no reserved events are going on. We had to stand to eat our lunch because there was no place to sit.

I think if they stop the teenage loitering, the park won't become so much of a hang out if they charged a gate general admission fee like all the other parks are doing, instead of ride tickets or bracelets. Just 1 general admission price for adults and 1 for children. And play all day on everything eccept for the midway games, roller skating rink, Miniature Golf, go carts, and arcade that would cost extra as an add on with a park admission ticket. That way everyone pays and its not just another free teenager's hangout.

Parking was very hard to find too. Very small parking lot for an amusement park, And very old buildings with a kind of old 60's look structure. Like I said this park needs to be modernized and updated bad.

For what this park has to offer, don't waste your money and time, save it and go to Silverwood or Wild Waves to get better rides that are not carnival rides!

This place should be called something like Oaks Carnival Ride Park, not Oaks Amusement Park. There is nothing amusing about it here!

Fun rides. Calm ones and exciting ones. Something for everyone. Good food. Also a great place for picnics: Lots of grass, trees and river views. You can reserve areas with tables indoors or out. There is also a indoor skating rink!

great little amusement park in portland!!!
Aug 2018 • Friends
take the kids for a fun experience in amusement park fun. This is a family friendly experience with something for everyone. From the rides, to the skating rink, kids of all ages will find something to enjoy here. Take the younger children on the small train the travels around the park. Enjoy the rides, that are wild enough for everyone, but tame enough to enjoy!!! Very reasonably priced fun experience.

We visited her to see their historic 1911 Herschel Spillman 1911 carousel. The carouse is probably getting ready for a restoration. Parking can be a problem - a major problem. There are several rides primarily for younger children, but there are rides for older people as well.
