This park provides several well maintained trails for bird watching within the city of Hillsboro, OR. This 61 acre park is great for the whole family. There is a boat ramp into the Tualatin River, tennis courts, a pavilion, picnic areas and even playground equipment for young children. The paths around the park are ideal for bird watching so bring binoculars and a good zoom lens. There are signs and the trails are color coded.

Cute little park with a lot of connected trails that follow, or encircle, the abundant water features of the area. Trails are a combination of paved, wood-chipped, and dirt with modest elevation changes. In the dry season, it's pretty easy to rack up several miles here. Much of the lower park floods during the wet season and is inaccessible until late spring. The park is improving the boat launch this year (2017) so expect heavy equipment in that area.

Beautiful. We were bummed we had to stop and backtrack because the path was flooded, but it’s definitely on our list of places to go back.

Quick easy fun little loop. My little dog and I loved to walk it. Under the bridge is a sketchy area. Stay away from that.

Off the beautiful well paved trails there are non paved trails in the woods. It floods this time of year but when it recedes its a treat. Great clean park. Beatiful flowers too.

Excellent for running. Most of the trails are paved but there are paths that take you into the woods that are mostly bark dust. Not too many people.
