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.
