Minto-Brown Island Park offers a well-loved, natural oasis in western Salem. Spanning more than a thousand acres, the park offers both wooded and open areas for recreational enjoyment. A winding paved pathway stretches end to end, allowing walkers, joggers, bicyclists, and inline skaters to experience its beauty firsthand. Amenities in the park include wildlife observation platforms, fishing docks, playgrounds, an off-leash dog area, picnic tables, portable toilets, and unpaved hiking trails.
The Peter Courtney Minto Island Bridge, spanning 300 feet across the Willamette Slough, connects the park to the Riverfront Trail. That trail winds through Riverfront Park, a popular location for many of the city’s major events. The downtown park features family-friendly attractions such as a hands-on children's museum, a carousel with dozens of hand-carved animals, and a large outdoor sculpture called Eco-Earth Globe.
Four parking lots are available in Minto-Brown Island Park (2200 Minto Island Road SE).
