Tom McCall Waterfront Park

This mile-long park — named for a former Oregonian governor — stretches along the Willamette River in Downtown Portland, with breathtaking views of the city’s skyline. And because of its location, the Tom McCall Waterfront Park hosts many of Portland’s special events, including the ever-popular Oregon Brewers Festival and the rowdy Cinco de Mayo Fiesta. It’s also the perfect spot for a picnic or an afternoon stroll.

Washington Park

Home to notable landscaping feats as the Japanese Garden and the International Rose Test Garden, as well as a number of family-friendly attractions like the Oregon Zoo and the Portland Children’s Museum, this great, green space offers enough activities to easily fill a day. Just make sure you save plenty of time so you can stroll down one of the many shady paths, which are often decorated with flower displays and fountains.

Portland Saturday Market
