Reviews for Tom McCall Waterfront Park

Tom McCall Waterfront Park

A quintessential downtown Portland attraction, this pretty riverfront park follows the Willamette from the Hawthorne Bridge to the Steel Bridge. In spring, the double rows of cherry trees on the Steel Bridge end are a wondrous sight, so bring your camera/Instagram.

A leisurely walk along the picturesque waterfront on a sunny ( and even not so sunny days) is a fantastic way to observe this city. 5 of the cities 7 bridges can be seen along this walk, a full spectrum of Portland people can be encountered and this is also home to many of the cities festivals such as the Shamrock run, Blues Fest, Rose Festival & many more.

Love it! – The waterfront is soo pretty. It's a great place to walk and enjoy the scenery. I especially loved the waterfront during the Jazz's so much fun. Good music, good food, and a lot of fun activities for kids and adults. It's a great part of the city.

Home to Portland's biggest summer festivals, with great people-watching year-round. – In Short
In 1968, then-Governor Tom McCall proposed creating a public space along the Willamette's west bank. At the time, Harbor Drive cut residents off from the area. The drive was eventually torn up, and a 22-block green space was constructed in 1974. The 29-acre park extends the length of downtown, along the Willamette. It features a boat deck, biking trails and The Battleship Oregon Memorial. On sunny days, it swarms with walkers, joggers and rollerbladers.

GREAT PLACE TO GO! – The Waterfront is a nice place to relax and pass the time. The water fountain is a huge attraction for kids and anyone else who wants to cool off on a hot summer day. It is fun to watch the interesting people on the Front and take in the view of the river.
