Nice walk along the waterfront and dog friendly. Pretty place to stroll on a warm day. Did have a issue with finding parking.

I took a break from a meeting downtown and came here for a quick jog. Beautiful views of the river. You can cross over an back on 2 pedestrian-friendly bridges. Pet and child friendly.

We love this place. Take a walk. Enjoy the vibe. The city can wait. This is the site of some of the most exciting scenic music events in the country. Check out the Waterfront Blues Fest over 4th of July weekend. Superb!

You will find a perfect mix of joggers, homeless and tourists, with the eventual needle collector and he guy talking to himself. Is worth the walk and it's a lively area of the city, with some views and in general, a very recommended walk in...More

The waterfront park which is owned by the city of Portland is free except certain events. Even during events, one can still access to the park itself without any charge.
