This traditional town park with tall shade trees was historically a landing point for steamboats on the Willamette River. Now you can explore the river by canoe from the boat ramp. Look for Spotted Sandpiper, Green Heron, and waterfowl along the river?s edge. A universally accessible municipal trail is being developed to give birders access to riparian forest, brushland and oaks on reclaimed industrial lands to the NW of this park. Plans include an overlook of the municipal wastewater treatment ponds, which have historically been a local birding hotspot for waterfowl, shorebirds, and songbirds in migration. The bridge over the Willamette River 0.4 mi S on Main St provides a link to the Willamette Loop (between sites W1 and W2).
From Hwy 99W in downtown Monmouth, at stoplight turn E on Monmouth- Independence Hwy and go 2.3 mi. In downtown Independence, turn L on Main St, go one block and look for park entrance on R.
