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.

Would avoid crossing into the wooded area past boat launch access, doesn't seem like a "family friendly" area. Garbage all over. Beautiful place for family pictures near parking area.

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!!!
