Park Review: Willamette Park
1100 12th st, West Linn Or 97068
Amenities: Lots of on street parking, restrooms, 2 large covered picnic areas, Plus other scattered picnic tables. Baseball fields, volleyball courts, boat ramp (where the Tualatin and Willamette rivers meet). Play structure and spray park area.
You can see that the spray area is in quite big it had two large spray areas and then a little pathway with smaller (less intimidating) sprinklers that connect the two areas.Here is a great view of the play area. There are 4 big kid swings and 1 toddler swing. What I really like about this park is it is mostly shaded. There are lots of big trees right in the toy area and it helps keep it cool even on hot days. It is also nice that there are bathrooms so close to the water area for changing and such.
Pros: Lots of room for picnics and water fun, love the shade.
Cons: Wish there were more benches to sit on around the water area and toy structure.
Arora hardly played in the water or the toys on this last trip to the park. I thought she would be super excited to go to the park becasue we haven’t been going much lately. Do your kids ever just sit on the grass?
