This 7.6 acre riverfront park is the delight of dogs and dog owners as it is an off-leash area. The boardwalk along the riverfront is lovely and there's even a little bit. There's a tiny nature trail around the pond. It is commonly used by paddlers the launch and land their boats. In fact this is the best place to access Willamette River from the East side. The lawn area is popular with picnickers. There's a wetland which is a tiny sort of nature reserve. In the summer the Portland Parks and Recreation department arranges free public concerts over here. It's a nice place to spend the afternoon.

Sellwood Riverfront Park Reviews & Ratings
Great park for dogs and humans alike. Beautiful riverfront views, lots of room to play. Great unfenced dog area for the pups to play. Access to water for pups to swim. Seems super safe and well maintained. Bathrooms are nice and clean too. Decent amount of parking space. Been a few times and really enjoyed each visit.
Great dog park, access to the Willamette river on foot. Has wheelchair access to public bathrooms, and beautiful view of the river. Just be cautious of homeless persons camping out! Law enforcement continuously sweeping the park but its something to write about to heighten public safety awareness!
This is a great spot to bring your 4 legged friends. Our dog had never been near a body of water (she's less than 2 years old) and she took to it in a minute here at the River. This isn't just for four legged friends, people were canoeing, paddle boarding, sun bathing (some topless - if you are into than thing). There's a nice grassy area near the parking lot. And on the subject of parking, be aware that there is very little in the parking lot we parked in. I don't know if there is an overflow or extended parking lot elsewhere.
One more trail and park you should visit. Portland is so much more than just downtown! Awesome park to relax or having fun. With or without dogs. The amusement park with the roller rink is next door. And also a wildlife refuge is further North.
We attended Flotsam! A river circus. It was adorable and entertaining. Getting to the area was easy for us able bodied. If you have a wheelchair or knee scooter, it is not easily or even moderately accessible. We made it but then there wasn’t much space for those on wheels to see the performance. So, if you are producing an event here, just because there is disability parking, the access is not great. Outside of that, it’s a beautiful spot to enjoy. Bathrooms are not close.
