Water Front Park, Portland: 25 reviews and 45 photos


Tom McCall Waterfront Park: This is a 22 block park!
It is on the water front so awesome view! The park hosts many events and festivals such as the Rose Festival, the Bite, the largest US Brewers' Festival and the Blues Festival. Also tons of art work all over the park bike trails! .......
Forest Park:the park is a mecca for hikers, cyclists and any outdoorsy person! One word BEAUTIFUL! Green green and more green which is what Oregon is all about! .......
They say every city has a heart, well Pioneer Courthouse Square is certainly the hear of Portland!
A giant piazza that is considerd by many experts an architectural wonder.I love the Roman columns. An amphitheater where musical concerts take place! ONE WORD OF CAUTION: watch out for the weather machine!!Just make sure you are around when the clock hits 12pm! :).......
Bonneville Dam: The perfect place to watch Salmon and steel heads moving up the river! Great scneic view! Are you feeling stressed out with all the walking and beer you have been drinking and your mother in law? If yes, then you need to head to Breitenbush Hot Springs retreat center! A Spa like that is really amazing. You will certainly relax and feel brand new!
