This beautiful, very well-maintained park is a great place to bring your little one. It has something new around every corner, from huge populations of geese, ducks and swans to fountains to great ponds, kids won't run out of excitement. Of course, there are also the vast rhododendron bushes, which can, depending on the season, turn the park into a veritable paradise.
If the hike around the gardens isn't enough, you can cross over into Reed College and walk the paths there. One tip, however. The bathrooms aren't always working, so you may need to use the porta-potties. And, keep a close eye on your kids -- more than one child has ended up in a pond!
