One of Oregon's premier boating facilities on the majestic Willamette River, this park offers expansive parking and a three-lane boat launch. From land or water, Rogers Landing is one of Yamhill County's top recreational resources. Many enjoy strolling the docks at sunset or scanning the skies for blue heron, osprey, kingfishers, or migrating geese. Located on the river's Newberg Pool, the park is especially popular with water skiers. In spring, fishermen brave the rain to catch salmon near Ash Island, just south of the park.
The Rock Island area — a complex of basalt covered with wildflowers in the late spring and early summer — is a perfect place to put in to paddle the upper Willamette narrows.
The birding in this stretch of the river is particularly rewarding, owing to the narrow channel and relatively prisitine forest habitat that literally surrounds you.
Rivervilla Park is a beautiful place to picnic or fish from the dock on the Willamette River.
Riverside Park, on the Clackamas River, has covered picnic facilities and a baseball field. The park is a great fishing spot.

Powers Marine Park is a natural area with paths and picnic areas. The park was named after Ira Powers, owner of Powers Furniture Company, who lived in Dunthorpe.
