Takena landing has a boat launch, picnic tables and a lawn for just relaxing and taking in the view of the river ( we went there to watch trees floating by after a deluge) and there's a nice patch for walking that takes you past the golf course. There are also bathrooms. It's a peaceful city park, under the bridges... More

Last week, following unusual hectic events, I found myself driving over to Takena Landing Park. I sat at the picnic table with a book, sitting in the sunshine, while frequently glancing up and quietly watching the river flow. It was a wonderful time to spend an hour of quiet reflection. There is good parking spaces available in the lot, and... More

This park has so much to offer. I often just like to take a book and read in my car by the river on a rainy day. If it is a good day their is a 3.5 round trip level nature trail that is beautiful in any season and boarders the Willamette River to the south and a golf course... More

Looking for a shady, cool walk or run? This is what you're looking for. This flat trail is a roundtrip 3.5 miles that offers glimpses of the river, farmland, and wildlife. The boat Landing offers a picturesque start and finish as well as picnic tables. Might not be the best winter trail (muddy) but lovely in the summer.

Our whole family's been going to the Concerts in the park for years, they're always fun, not too crowded and have a variety of Styles of music from Rock to Jazz. It's a great laid back way to spend a summer evening!

Today's hike along the Willamette River was noted by gangly blackberry vines and outstretched Nettles reaching for the sun, narrowing the trail down to a slender one lane in some places. Due to a mild winter and that it's not yet summer season when the trail will be trimmed, I would not recommend biking or wearing shorts!

Great 3.14 mile trail on dirt through the woods along the river. Mountain bike easily or walk. Mostly shaded.

The only thing difficult about this trial would be the length for the elderly. This trail lacks in depth but for a trail located with in city limits it is recommended for those with friends of the canine variety...there is a tiny loop located at the end of the trail so the walk is basically a straight line to and...

It is close to down town Albany. A great place to hike. We have a picnic lunch and enjoy the river. Take the time to look at the flood makers.
