Love walking through this huge park. You can get a nice, long walk by going all around the park and through it. Lots of access points with paved walkways, bathrooms, baseball diamond, a few tennis courts with lights, woodsy area, art barn, children's play area and lots of grassy areas and plenty of shade trees.

Anytime of the year is a pleasure to wander through this park. The gardens are so nicely kept up. Take a tour of the house too.

Some people go to the park just to jog but it has much more to offer. Two full play areas for children, flowers most of the year, an art gallery, and a base ball diamond. I primarily go to the park to take pictures. In the spring there is tulips, columbine, wisteria, and other early flowers. The purple wisteria vines... More

Within the city of Salem is a beautiful park with great history. I like the open meadow-like area west side of the park for just soaking up the sun. The beautiful trees provide nice setting as you walk along the paved paths, with picnic tables placed conveniently to the parking area on the south side of the park. You can... More

It has both paved and barked pathways allowing one to walk a mile or two without repeating the same course. It's attractions include the Bush House Museum and art gallery, the extensive rose gardens, a small greenhouse surrounded... More

Bush park has lots of nice trails with different terrain features from a babbling brook to a forest or a large green grass area. The tennis courts are in good shape but could use a porta potty so players could avoid long interruptions while walking long distance to rest rooms. How much could that cost the city?? Overall a very... More
