The Willamette River Walkway is a great place to get your steps, watch the sun rise and set, and take in both the river and the many bridges that cross it. Good pedestrian cross over points are Tilikum Crossing and the Steel Bridge. I recently...More

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.
