The park has just about everything: Willamette University's football field/stadium, the Bush Barn Art Gallery and studio, lovely formal gardens, natural areas and the site of the annual Salem Art Festival--one of the West's best summer festivals. Very close to downtown Salem.

I really loved this park. You could tour the old home on the property, hike on the many trails, or meander among the many flowers. The rose garden was outstanding with a beautiful gazebo for resting or picture taking.
