“Beautiful Sacred Space”
Review of Salmon Creek Park

Salmon Creek Park
Ranked #11 of 44 things to do in Vancouver
Attraction details
Reviewed 17 May 2017

This park is my church. I drop down via the Cougar Creek Trail and then do a loop around the turtle pond averaging a 5 mile work out. This park will take you through soaring pines, rushing water, lush grasslands, marsh, wild flowers, and a beautiful pond. There are herons, eagles, osprey, ducks, turtles, the occasional nutria, and a pack of coyotes that call this beautiful place home. Right in the middle of the city I can feel like I've been to the forest and estuary for much needed body and soul healing. Love this place! Folks bring your dogs, kids, bikes, picnics, friends and lovers. This spot is never sketchy or creepy (accept if you have small dogs and the coyotes are yip-yoweling), even the bands of marauding teenagers are pleasant to encounter. My only suggestion would be more garbage cans along the walkway. **People! Don't put your dog poop in a plastic bag and then toss it on the side of the path...gross! Better to let your dog just do it's thing in the grass and walk on. Sheesh.
Anyway, a truly, madly deeply and amazing space.

We've seen swans, ducks, geese, rabbits, snakes, birds, squirrels, and even deer at this beautiful park. I take the dog for walks there a couple times a week. From one end of the park to the other is approx 3 miles. At one end of the park is a beautiful view of Mt Hood in Oregon. At the other end is a small swimming and fishing area called Klineline pond. There are life guards in the summer. It is also fun to ride a bike along the paved trail. This is a well kept trail.

I always think what could be in Vancouver and then I stumble upon this park on the way to the doctors office. A wonderful neighborhood and a picturesque area with a pond. Areas for picnics, bird watching and strolling trails.

There is a trail that winds all along the woods in Salmon Creek. Ends at the big park. It's very relaxing occasionally you might see a blue heron . The site and sound of birds. And rushing Creek water along the rocks. There are park benches to sit and relax, and another park to barbecues, swim or have a family picnic. It's not far from downtown Vancouver and it's great if you need a little exercise or relaxation.
