It's pretty but a little rough around the edges. I think they need to clean it up and put in some fun stuff to do.

This park has a great parking lot for visiting the park or taking a walk/ride on the paved trail which will take you all the way into downtown. There are great views of the river. Good for kayakers and dog owners.

We often stroll along the bike path near the Sellwood Bridge and visit this riverfront park. We would sit and watch the riverfront activities. There are always many dog owners exercising their dogs playing fetch in the park and in the river water. There were probably more than 20 dogs with their masters when we visited this weekend.

This is a small park that is a dog park. Look out for leftovers from the dogs and if you decide to sit down, make sure you have a blanket or a chair. It is a lovely little park and close to the river. The venue is great for concerts, children and animals-dogs.

Wonderful morning setting out for a paddle from here. As we paddled along there were tons of dogs playing in the water fetching their sticks and just swimming. In the morning it's nice and shady here. The parking lot isn't too big but seems to flow w people leaving and coming at different times. There is also a fellow renting... More

Running water and sand to play in, picnic tables for dining. Kids love to come here. Easy to get to, good for big kids and little kids. Very popular during summer months.

I went on a dreary afternoon in a steady drizzle and really enjoyed the stroll. Could be a great place to run or take a walk with a stroller or your dog. Forested trails, open meadow, lake front views. All in all, a very nice outing.

This park itself is nothing spectacular. What makes it awesome is the view and the neighborhood. Sellwood's home are a joy to see. For the fixer upper waiting for it savior to the many many homes that have been beautifully restored. And even better downtown Sellwood has lots of fun shops and restaurants.

I came to Portland for a doggy vacation and definitely enjoyed the park. Open field and section of water that dogs can run and play freely. I will come back next time.
