  1. This 40-acre park on the banks of the Willamette River is one of the best urban spaces for Portlandians interested in walking, running, and cycling. It's relatively flat, the scenery is subtly beautiful with the river and colorful cherry trees, and there are plenty of options you can take to make your jaunt as long or short as you'd like.
