Stringfield Family Park
3614 SE Naef Rd, Portland, Oregon 97267
Located off McLaughlin Blvd between Gladstone and Milwaukie city limits.
Parking: Off street and very close to play equipment.
Amenities: Park has restrooms that were very clean. Many benches and picnic tables. One large covered picnic area. Large grassy areas, small “stream” and two bridges that cross it. Walking path that circles the park.
Play ground equipment: 2 big kid and 2 toddler swings. One area that is more for little kids, stairs, “mountain climb” and small slide.
Larger area for bigger kids with 2 slides and many things to climb up on. The “official” recommended age for this park is 5 and up. I would give this park the okay for 18 months and up in the little area, and 3 or 4 and up in the big kid area. The substrate is small wood chip, so avoid wearing sandals as splinters are likely.
Over all I give this park 8 of 10 stars. It lost one star because there are many many dogs that walk here and we saw a little too much dog poo to really run around in the grass. The other star was lost because the restroom is frequently used by public workers (post men, construction crews etc) Which meant there were a lot of people coming and going that were not there for the park. I just had a little bit of a weird feeling with all the bathroom traffic.
