Desperate dog park area. Miles and miles of trail systems. Great spots along the river. Great for birthday parties. Lots of parking. Beautiful scenery. Don't recommend going late. A little scary out around dark. Lots of crime at night

This is a great place for some rest and relaxation! It is a great place for a picnic, a nice walk in God's beauty or a bike ride!

I love this place. This is a great place to walk alone or with friends, even when the weather isn't ideal. There are so many paths, I still haven't found every single one. The only unfortunate thing is that it often floods.

While we're not dog owners (we have 2 cats) we thoroughly enjoyed a sunny Saturday stroll on the nicely paved trails. Watching all the dogs enjoy themselves was therapeutic. It's been so grey lately that this little getaway was perfect!

Amazing off leash dog park!! Acres of undfenced fields for them to run, chase and play. Also miles of trails to hike on leash and a new bridge where you can walk over into downtown Salem for a bite and a brew.

This dog park is really nice. I've never had an issue and my dog loves it!! However, today we had a bad experience. People-- if your dog isn't friendly do not bring it to a dog park off of its leash. Do yourself and everyone...More

Great place for dogs who are dog friendly and enjoy nature and all sorts of smells! It is like attending a dog show with the number of different dog breeds there!

We take our dogs here every couple days to give them a good run. Never had a problem with other dogs. People are generally good and pick up after their pets.

I've been in Salem for many years, I've never known it to be anything else other than farm land.

Yes there are a few, I believe, down by the children's playground area all the way at the end of the road near the river.
