The Fields Park2

This park is very large and so spacious even though it’s located in the center of Pearl District which has had heavy development. Despite being surrounded by many tall buildings under construction, the nice lawn and the great view of Fremont Bridge might make you feel so relaxed (if it’s good weather!). I highly recommend visiting this park with your kids because it comes with playground equipment. My kids love to visit here to get the wiggles out after wandering around the neighborhood. Also it’s a nice spot for walking and sunbathing on the lawn (…again, if it’s good weather!).

The Fields Park1The playground area is gated and it has a sand pit, a hammock, slides, etc… Kids love them!

The Fields Park3There are plenty of benches. I saw many kids chalk doodles on the benches 🙂

The Fields Park4Once you get out from the playground gate, there is a paved looping sidewalk which is great for a relaxing walk.

The Fields Park5Across the spacious lawn, you can see a great view of Fremont Bridge. It was a hot but beautiful day, so I saw some people sunbathing on the lawn.

The Fields Park6During my walk, I saw about three sets of picnic tables and chairs.

The Fields Park7The park is located by Willamette River. There are some spots that you can peak through the river between the buildings.

The Fields Park8I didn’t see anybody, but there is a gated dog park which is only for smaller dogs.

The Fields Park9We are back! The sidewalk loops back to the playground area again. Can you see the gray structure in the center of this photo? That is the public bathroom. It’s by the playground.

Everybody there was enjoying reading, walking with dogs, sunbathing, picnic and so on … relaxing time. We visited on the weekend, but we didn’t feel like too many people were there.

A great cafe called “Ovation” is right next to the park. They carry many Moroccan coffee and snack items. Their high ceiling interior along with tasty coffee, tea, and kid friendly staff was impressive and welcoming.

You also can enjoy Park Hopping to “Tanner Springs Park” just 1 block south. Also “Jamison Park” about 4 blocks south has a great wading pool.
