“Beautiful Park in Salem”
Reviewed 28 July 2013

This park has well maintained paved trails along the water and through the forest. The trails were wide enough that bikers and pedestrians could enjoy them at the same time with no issue. My family enjoyed walking here in the late morning and seeing the birds and fish. It's away from the city, so it's quiet and peaceful.

“great for dogs”
Reviewed 7 July 2013

Nice, sizable park down by the river. The dog area is large and open. Unfortunately, it tends to stay muddy most of the year due to rain and proximity to river.

“Great for long walks and nature viewing”
Reviewed 20 June 2013

Minto-Brown park has over 10miles of trails, access to waterways, and lots of bird watching opportunities. This park has a playground, dog park section, and miles of paved trails. Minto is my favorite park in Salem.

“Family outing”
Reviewed 8 June 2013

Went to the park with the family and grandchildren. It is a wonderful place to get away from the city. The river runs right along side it making it seem like you are miles away from civilization. Lots of walking and bike trails to choose from and there is plenty of wildlife to observe while out. We saw an Osprey nest in the top of a telephone pole with nesting birds in it. There are numerous places for family picnics and play areas, and they even have a large area for dogs to run without leashes.
