Close to the Willamette River, this southeast estuary is one of the best places in the city to birdwatch. A trail meanders through the wetlands of Johnson Creek, making a wonderful refuge for critters caught in the city. Bird and other wildlife are protected in this natural habitat serving as an extension of the Springwater Corridor Trail
, another protected path that treks through the city. Hiking here is fine, but picnics are not—the park has no developed sites. There are no fees to use the park.
