About Mount Tabor Park, Portland
This Urban Park, located on an extinct volcano cone, is the very definition of an urban treasure. Shrouded with tall fir trees, paths winding and circling up to the top, criss-crossed with many further network of trails, and with plenty of amenities it is the absolute beloved of the locals. There is a picnic area, playground, restroom, and basketball court, a place to take your dogs off leash, tennis courts, volleyball court and even a wedding site. It is obviously very popular with hikers, joggers, cyclists and skateboarders. Obviously the views from the top are breath-taking. Occasionally concerts are held at the park. You will also find 3 water reservoirs that supply the city with the drinking water over here. Try coming in the morning or the evening to catch the sunrise or the sunset.

Mount Tabor Park, Portland Reviews - Write a Review
One of my favorite parks to walk my dog, go for a jog, catch sunset, or even have a picnic. It's large enough to find space for just about anything. Great open spaced for sunny cool days and lots of shade for hot summer days. On Wednesdays that street is only accessible by pedestrians (and maybe bikes)! You'll find families with babies and kids or couples lounging together.
Lots of different trails for walking, bicycling, etc, but be prepared for either a lot of stairs or some very steep hills. There are benches carefully placed and areas to see views of the city. The trees are opened there, so they tend to be in full sun. I personally preferred the views between the benches when I could look into the forest instead, but there are always people enjoying the view of the city. Drinking fountains are in the area, as are the occasional historical plaque or statue. It's kind of neat to realize that you're walking on the country's only volcano that is within city limits. P. S. The new and improved community building with better bathrooms and so on will be ready in August 2017.
This park is a Portland treasure. Miles of trails, flat or hilly, and a ton of stairs if that's your thing. Remnants of a volcanic cone, a visitors center, restrooms and plenty of picnic areas scattered through the park. There is a large playground for the kids as well. Leash free dog park in the back side and on Wednesday the park closes to vehicle traffic. Bikes and pedestrians only. I visit this park on a regular basis.
Stunning view, pleasant hike up, and massive trees. Not really suitable for hanging a hammock, so if you’re weird like me, that’s a downside. But the best place to be in Portland on a sunny day. Shade, views, and nice people.
We love this park to walk our dogs. Lots of trails through the woods. Some days they dont allow cars in the park, so its nice and quiet. Nature center and play structures, public restooms make this a Xanadu in the city limits.
