Nice park with a short trail along the Willamette river. This is a city park but most people never go beyond the boat ramp or the picnic areas. Over the wooden foot bridge is a nature trail. The terrain is a flat hardpack trail. Periwinkle Creek enters the Willamette River here. It is interesting that the creek flows in the opposite direction as the river. NOTE: It has not recommended to do this hike alone due to safety reasons.

I do not recommend going here, it's full of weird people (drugged groups of people) who stay late in vehicles getting high and watch you. Not kid friendly!!!

Beautiful walk along the riverside. Would never go alone or unarmed o_0
