East Fork Lewis River Greenway

This site includes more than 1,000 acres of waterfront property along both banks of the East Fork Lewis River between Paradise Point State Park north of La Center and Daybreak Park north of Battle Ground. It is part of an interconnected, 10-mile greenway system.

The entire greenway is state-designated priority habitat for large concentrations of migratory waterfowl, wintering bald eagles, and features high-quality riparian habitat. Most of the greenway is open to the public, but is not developed. There are no formal park amenities.

Dodge Park

For nearly 100 years, people have flocked to this scenic spot at the confluence of the Sandy and Bull Run rivers. Crowned with tall trees, carpeted with green grass, and lined with a sandy beach, the park has been a refuge and picnic spot for people from the Portland area since the early 1900's.

Dodge Park is open to visitors for spring and summer picnicking, camping, fishing, volleyball, or just listening to the songs of the rivers. The boat ramp is also a popular put-in for rafters, kayakers and driftboaters to float down to nearby Oxbow Park.



Dayton Landing

Located five miles upsteam from the Willamette River at the confluence of the Yamhill River and Palmer Creek, this 1.4-acre county park has a small boat ramp and ample parking. A footbridge connects Dayton Landing to the City of Dayton's Alderman Park, across the Yamhill. A nature trail beginning at nearby Dayton Grade School travels along Palmer Creek and connects to Dayton neighborhoods.

In Dayton, drive northeast on Ferry Street and turn southeast onto Water Street.

Dabney State Recreation Area

The classic summer place, Dabney has been a popular cooling-off swimming and picnic spot for over 50 years. It's easy to see why when you visit. The lower, older part of the park at the west end features an asphalt trail leading down to a classic swimming hole. The newer parts of the park feature a covered picnic shelter, an 18-hole disc golf course and trails winding through tall bamboo, horsetail, cottonwoods and alders.

Exit 18 off I-84. Park located along E Crown Point Hwy.

Cross Park

Located along the Clackamas River, Cross Park is improved with permanent restrooms, paved walking/bicycle paths, picnic tables, irrigation system, overhead lighting. Depending on water level in the river, this park is used year round by fishermen, picnickers, and for other passive recreation uses. Cross Park is about 50% landscaped, with the steeper banks in natural vegetation.
