Steamboat Landing Park provides pedestrian access to several points of interest. Visitors can stroll a floating boardwalk on the Columbia River that leads to an elevated observation deck with vast views of the River, Mt. Hood and Oregon. A peaceful wooded trail provides an alternate short cut to the deck. Visitors can also access the US Corps of Engineers levee trail (used by walkers, bicycles and horses), leading to Captain William Clark Park at Cotton Wood Beach, and the Steigerwald Lake National Wildlife Refuge trail (no dogs or bicycles allowed on the Refuge trail).
The park features numerous picnic areas, two boat launching facilities, a fully stocked lake for fishing, and more than 15 miles of hiking and or biking trails.

This 61-acre community park provides a vast range of recreation opportunities for the community and visitors. Paved paths lead the way through the different developed and natural areas of the park. Soft-surface paths lead further into wetland and wooded areas around the Tualatin River.
