Memorial Park is the city’s oldest and largest park, acquired by the city in 1969, one year after incorporation. The park contains both active and passive use areas, and includes significant natural areas with an extensive trail system. Boeckman Creek bisects the park. Memorial Park also has a half mile of Willamette River frontage with views from the trail system.
Memorial Park is also home to the city’s only off-leash dog area and it's community garden.
