Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge - Review

These 141 acres worth of floodplains wetlands on the east of the Willamette River are technically considered a part Portland parks. It is managed by the Portland Parks and Recreation Department, in collaboration with the friends of Oaks Bottom. It has an incredible avian diversity with hawks, coots, woodpeckers, great blue heron, kestrels and wigeons commonly seen. These are only a handful of 185 bird species over here. Vegetation is quite diverse too, including the Oregon White Oak, ash trees, black locust trees, poison oak and Reed canary grass. It also has some decent hiking and biking trails with views along the riverfront, with about 3.6 miles worth of trails.

Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge, Portland Reviews

  • It was a gorgeous day today. We saw Mallard pairs, a Red-tailed Hawk, 3 White Herons, and a Great Blue Heron as well as smaller birds on our hike through the "Bottom". The path was fairly dry and there were lots of families out as well as individual hikers, walkers, and joggers. There were bicyclists on the paved portions of the trails. The City has done a good job of maintaining the trails, benches and bridges. There was no trash visible and the refuge was very clean. I'll definitely be going back to walk/hike the trails again soon.

  • This is a nice swampy, lush vegitation, fogs/mists most mornings & it's usually not crowded "At All".....!.

  • Nice walk on well groomed trails. Heard many birds,saw many plants and flowers but did not see a lot of wildlife.

  • My very first time great place just started to learn about it I love everything about..

  • The awesome short story of this place: A Parks Dept. worker asked his bosses if they could look into designating it an official wildlife refuge. They said no, so he went to the sign department and had them make some signs saying wildlife refuge and hung them up in a bunch of trees. After awhile everyone assumed it actually was, and when the city started telling people it wasn't, there was a backlash, and then pressure, until it officially became "Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge". All thanks to one guy (whose name I forget), breaking the rules.
