This 243 acre wetland area is a must-see for bird watchers. The Audubon Society of Portland recognizes this area as a popular place to see a variety of Pacific Northwest bird species. There is usually plenty of parking and a nice gravel path circling the northern wetland pond provides bird watchers the opportunity to view the wildlife up close. Make sure to bring a good zoom lens and binoculars.

Really great, easy walking path. Would be great for bird watching. There's a neat man made waterfall area. No dogs allowed which is a bit shame.
