Due west of Willamette’s commercial core, you may happen upon a regional championship baseball game at Fields Bridge Park. This 19-acre park also has basketball courts, community gardens and walking paths that meander along a wide, gentle swath of the Tualatin River for a quarter mile or so. A covered bridge was a nearby feature until 1953.
The park has an interpretive center describing geologic features caused by a cataclysmic Ice Age event known as the Missoula flood. The flood carved out our river gorges, cliffs and the valley floor of the Willamette and Tualatin River basins where you’re standing.
Location: Willamette Falls Drive at Fields Bridge, approximately 1 mile west of historic Willamette.
