I enjoyed the set up. You can take your dog with ease. There is a great open field where your dog can be off leash to decent trails where we encountered joggers, walkers and bikers. Though it seemed busy upon arrival, I believe that due to the spaces it gave people distance and it then felt more quiet and calm.
I will be returning.

Wasn't that happy. Every trail was closed or flooded. Nothing marking the trails or directions. Rude people and not that great of views. Hope it gets better

Nice sized park with many different areas and activities. Safe area for dogs to free-roam.
Walked the river at sunset. Wow, the river is golden with the setting sun. There is a lot to explore on this island oasis. The city of Salem is working on a foot bridge to connect three city parks. This being the last. Great place for Oregonians to do what they do best... get outdoors. We will return many times to this place.
