“What is happening today?”
Reviewed 9 July 2012

We went in the evening for a late picnic dinner and Salmon Creek Park was absolutely filthy! What is wrong with people today? It seems as though people do not feel the need to pick up after themselves. There were abandoned items floating in the water...trash EVERYWHERE and no one spoke English. There is a fee to pay when entering (which we missed because of the time) however, I would have been outraged if I did have to pay...Such a disappointment...mostly in people.

“Great walking trail.”
Reviewed 20 May 2012

There is a 6mile trail (round trip), and it's all paved. Many times we see kids riding their bikes with their families. We've seen Osprey, Hawks, Bald Eagles, Herons, Egrits, and countless other small animals and birds on the walking trail. It is beautiful year round. Lots of colors in the spring and fall.

“One of Vancouver's Secrets”
Reviewed 30 November 2006

The pond sits next to Salmon Creek off the 5 freeway in Vancouver. There is fishing, swimming, bike trails (about 6 miles) and plenty of wild life to view. There are picnic tables and snack bar. They have a new water feature for the kids to play in during the warmer months. It is fun for the whole family.
