Risley park

Park review: Risley Park

2350 SE Swain Oak Grove Or 97267

Amenities: on street parking, large grassy area with tall trees, walking trail, basketball court, tennis court, few picnic tables and a play structure.

We have visited this park a few times, it is almost always empty. The play structure seems to be a bit older, and the substrate (wood chips) is well worn down. When it rains the play ground is a mud pit. When it is warm the metal slides are very hot. It is not the best park.  There are two big kid swings and two toddler swings.

There is a large area to run around in and lots of birds and squirrels live here. There are often dog walkers and we have seen a bit too much poo to really run around here though.

Pros: Probably wont have to share the park.

Cons: No restrooms, most of the year it is too hot or too muddy.
