After a meal in Sellwood, we headed over to SE Spokane, parked at the end of the road, and walked along the trails, making our way towards Oaks Bottom. There's enough room that you can dodge the dog walkers, runners and other athletic events, and still focus on your conversation. Would suggest taking this walk on a summer or late... More

Can get up close and personal with the river. A bit scary with the water as high as it is this spring. Wonderful parking but you have to look for it. It is at the back of a commercial lot. Nice paved walks for jogging and dog walking.

It's pretty but a little rough around the edges. I think they need to clean it up and put in some fun stuff to do.

This park has a great parking lot for visiting the park or taking a walk/ride on the paved trail which will take you all the way into downtown. There are great views of the river. Good for kayakers and dog owners.

We often stroll along the bike path near the Sellwood Bridge and visit this riverfront park. We would sit and watch the riverfront activities. There are always many dog owners exercising their dogs playing fetch in the park and in the river water. There were probably more than 20 dogs with their masters when we visited this weekend. If you... More

This is a small park that is a dog park. Look out for leftovers from the dogs and if you decide to sit down, make sure you have a blanket or a chair. It is a lovely little park and close to the river. The venue is great for concerts, children and animals-dogs.

Wonderful morning setting out for a paddle from here. As we paddled along there were tons of dogs playing in the water fetching their sticks and just swimming. In the morning it's nice and shady here. The parking lot isn't too big but seems to flow w people leaving and coming at different times. There is also a fellow renting... More

Running water and sand to play in, picnic tables for dining. Kids love to come here. Easy to get to, good for big kids and little kids. Very popular during summer months.
