Great outdoor spot for anyone and everyone. Clean, fresh, fun and even a revitalizing place to enjoy a well deserved family and friends outing. This is a place that all individuals of ages, including very young children alike will enjoy.

This lovely private park in Tumwater, Washington, gets you up close to the banks of the Deschutes River and the powerful Tumwater Falls. This area brought the first settlers to Washington, and also gives an insight into the Salmon cycle.
