Gov. Tom McCall Waterfront Park

Once the site of a Portland freeway, this riverfront park is a popular place for jogging, in-line skating and cooling off in Salmon Street Springs, a fountain whose water patterns change with the city's mood.

The park bears the name of former Oregon Governor Tom McCall, a staunch advocate of recycling, environmental preservation and urban planning. This mile-long stretch of green along the Willamette River is home to many annual events, including the Portland Rose Festival, the Oregon Brewers Festival and the Waterfront Blues Festival.
The Japanese American Historical Plaza is located at the north end of the park. Open year-round. Free.

Address:
Bordering Naito Parkway between the
Steel Bridge and the RiverPlace Marina
Portland, OR
