“Nice area to take the dog for a walk, but also some negatives”

Ranked #20 of 43 things to do in Corvallis
Attraction details
Reviewed 1 September 2015

Willamette Park has a variety of sports fields, plus trails along the river. The park extends from the Crystal Lake boat ramp in the north to the Taylor water Treatment Plant in the south. During the week, it is fairly quiet, and a nice place to walk the dog. Unfortunately there are dog owners that don't clean up after their pets. After 5 and on weekends it becomes crowded and dusty. While there are some porta potties, the lack of sanitary facilities results in frequent episodes of public urination. The picnic spots are nice, but could use more frequent trash removal and yellow jacket control.

Willamette park is often overlooked as a nice place for a short hike, picnic, or to watch sports activities. Most people know of the latter, but overlook the trails along the river.

Nice place for a lunch time walk or bike ride. Quiet park has soccer fields and interesting paved and non paved trails. Dog friendly.

Paved and dirt trails that bring you along the Willamette River. Also a disc golf course and many baseball/soccer fields. Lots of places to play with your dog and if you want to get out on the river, there is a boat ramp. Nothing amazing, but a nice place to get away from town. Usually pretty packed with people if the weather is nice.

Dogs have the run of trails through the woods, along the Willamette River, and in the sports fields during the winter and early spring. The best place for dogs to run, splash and swim in the river, and play with other dogs.

Fields for baseball, T-ball, soccer, and ultimate Frisbee. Boat ramp.
