Reader survey: Mt. Tabor is #1 favorite park

By Shannon L. Cheesman • KATU.com • July 29, 2008

PORTLAND, Ore. – In an informal survey last week, we asked our readers to tell us which Portland park is their favorite.

Here are the top three:

  1. Mt. Tabor Park, with its great trails for walkers, runners and cyclists, off leash areas for dogs and natural scenic beauty came in at #1.
  2. Forest Park came in a close second. “It’s so close to downtown, but there are parts of the park that make you feel like you’re nowhere near a city,” David Peterson wrote in his response.
  3. Tryon Creek State Park came in third. You might remember that this is the location of the big red box in the woods.

  1. Thanks for bringing this survey to a wider community.

  2. Interesting – I was posting “Mt Tabor” yesterday for a photo on Google Earth, of a mound in San Francisco. Mt. Tabor was a fave years ago, even when I was in my teens.
