We ventured out along the banks of the river and really enjoyed our time. Relaxing walk along the riverbank in the Southwest Riverfront area and even stopped at Willamette Park. Can't wait to explore other parts of the Riverwalk.

The walkway was packed with runers, walkers, fast and slow bikers. A place where you had to be on the lookout so you did not get run over. Also loads of bums and street folks. I would not do it again.
