“At 5,200 acres, Portland’s Forest Park is one of the largest urban forests in the United States. With more than 80 miles of trails, fire lanes and forest roads, Forest Park stretches for more than seven miles along the eastern slope of the Tualatin Mountains, overlooking Northwest Portland and the convergence of the Columbia and Willamette Rivers. Forest Park offers an unparalleled opportunity for visitors to experience a true Northwest forest without leaving the Portland city limits.”
“The last time I checked, the grounds were still open. There’s a wonderful view of Portland and good history here. ”
“NOT OPEN CURRENTLY, however you can walk up to an old submarine. When it reopens, it’s a lovely science museum for adults and kids alike. If you’re lucky enough to be visiting for one of their OMSI After Dark events, those are highly recommended”
