On new year’s day we decided it was time to get out of the house and explore some place new, but we didn’t want to go far. We found a park in Salem – Minto-Brown Island – that did just that!
Great walking and running paths (paved) run along the Willamette River and the Willamette Slough. (Click here for the city’s trail map)
There is a covered picnic area with a small play structure
and lots of birds.
There is even a large duck pond (although frozen when we were there).
I can’t wait to go back in the Spring!
