We love to visit the park pretty much anytime of the year, but the spring and fall are the best. It is located next to the Willamette river and offers great trail for running, walking, or biking.

Minto-Brown just opened its new foot and bicycle bridge from Riverfront Park. The bridge is gorgeous and adds so much to the ambiance. Now I can walk to the island from my house. This is going to be a great summer.

Desperate dog park area. Miles and miles of trail systems. Great spots along the river. Great for birthday parties. Lots of parking. Beautiful scenery. Don't recommend going late. A little scary out around dark. Lots of crime at night

Yes there are a few, I believe, down by the children's playground area all the way at the end of the road near the river.
