Tom McCall Waterfront Park
Officially named Tom McCall Waterfront Park, but known to Oregonians as just Waterfront Park, this is often the center of activity in Portland. Festivals, parades, performers, and more make it truly a taste of Rose City. Walk along the Willamette River at lunch and you're sure to brush shoulders with the city's workers. There is always something interesting to see here. There are basketball courts and lots of open, green space along the west bank of the Willamette River. The need for additional parks and green spaces in the city led to construction of the park.
While visiting Portland went down to Waterfront Park..great place for a stroll with friends. I love Portland. I was born and raised in Philadelphia PA, lived for a time in Toronto Canada, Cleveland OH, and currently reside in St. Petersburg FL but my next move is to Portland.
I fell in love with this unique city back in the summer of 2006, was so impressed by all that it has to offer.
IT IS A MAGNIFICENT TOWN TO VISIT. FAR MORE ENJOYABLE THAN THE BETTER KNOWN WEST COAST CITIES OF SEATTLE, SAN FRANCISCO, LA, SAN DIEGO. LOVELY ATMOSPHERE WITH GARDENS, UNFORGETTABLE VIEWS OF MT. HOOD. MOST IMPORTANT, PEACE AND TRANQUILITY, BUT PLENTY OF ENTERTAINMENT AND EXCITEMENT SHOULD ONE BE SEEKING THOSE DIVERSIONS. WE ARE FROM MEXICO, AND WILL RETURN TO PORTLAND AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. WE WOULD LIKE TO LIVE THERE.
MANY THANKS TO PORTLAND.

Waterfront Park is truely the heart of Portland. From the Rose Festiaval to the Beer Fest it happens here. It also has a great views of the river and the tall buildings. At the same time you can relax and walk for miles safely.
The Waterfront is a great place to park, and just take a walk! There are several small eating places for great ice cream or other small eats. There is a parking garage at the Marina on the South end of the Park, and there are also metered spots. The Waterfront stretches for several miles, and walking it at night is safe and 'romantic,' depending on who you�re with. Your evening can be either expensive or cheap, choose your eats, your after-eating exercise, and have fun!
Waterfront park gives Portland a beautiful and functionary centralized attraction. The park hosts many of the Rose Cities renowned events such as the Rose Festival, the Blues festival and the Bite. It also has great restaurants, access to downtown areas such as Saturday Market and Yamhill Market place, and provides wonderful meandering walkways along the Willamette river. A++ rating.
As it has so many times, Portland Parks and Recreation decided to rejuvenate an area previously prone to misuse by
vandals and the like. Now fit for families, this 26 acre corner of the city lends unity to the ...
Portland is called the "Rose City" for a reason: these public gardens, established in 1917 are set above the cityscape
of downtown Portland. They are the oldest official public rose gardens in the United States, and the only place ...
