I didn't stay long, seemed too remote and there is broken glass all over the parking lot like they have problems with vandalism of vehicles.

We found this great park in our hotel provided guide (Quality Suites, Keizer--GREAT hotel!!!) This is a wonderful park! Great walking trails, some along the Willamette River. We enjoyed a glorious morning here.

Over all this is not a real exciting park, you have to pay for a pass to go here it is just open fields there is a path o walk on and a outline of the buildings that were here when it was a mission . I am glad I went but was not real exciting .

This park has some interesting historical exhibits of early settler life. The exhibits are tastefully done, not overwhelming, and do not take away from the beauty of the site, with great hikes, fishing, picnics, etc. The Willamette River is within the park (or a part of the river is).

Nice relaxing park, almost a secret getaway. Good place for reunions, or a nice relaxing walk through the area surrounded by farmland.

A distance from the main road, this park will give you opportunity to bike, walk, horse ride or boat ride. Lots of open space for picnicking. Level ground for ease. $5 for parking. An inexpensive rural treat. And on the way there or home- several nurseries to visit. Select some flora to remember the day.

The park is in a lovely country side area, farms surround the park, there is a walk along the river to the first Mission site. Good place for family picnics.

A very nice park with an interpretive trail, an off-leash dog park, camping and trails. I have been there to hike/walk and to ride my bike and it's been very enjoyable.
