This is my favorite place in all of Portland. It's just a wide spread of grass where people play Frisbee or guitars, sidewalk where people jog or skate by, and then Portland's river running right through where people sail. There are two bridges on either side that will take you to the other side of Portland, which is known as the Hawthorne District. It's a beautiful view no matter which way you look, and no matter what time you go. There's a fountain that turns on in the summer that is very fun to run through! But look out for a small ledge that's made invisible by all the water. I have tripped over it so many times.

Ah, Waterfront Park, how I miss you! When I used to live in Portland, this is where you would find me on many beautiful nights. Well, me and a few hundred other people… Waterfront Park is located on the west bank of the Willamette River and is spread out over 37acres. Waterfront basically is a park with a walkway along the water that leads to more walking or to restaurants and bars. It also is where Fleet Week happens during the Rose Festival. There are rides and booths there during this time, but it also become a scary meat market. Yikes!

Waterfront is the best place to ride your bike, rollerblade or go old school in roller skates, walk or just people watch. I like to walk and people watch, because there are a lot of strange people in Portland and you can see right at Waterfront. Though I wouldn’t recommend going late at night as there are less people and sometimes you can run into someone just too weird.

Also there is Salmon Street Springs that is turned on at various times during the summer. It is a fountain that shoots out water and is a favorite spot when the temperature rises. I have run through it a few times myself until I thought about where the water might be coming from. Have fun!
