Parks & Nature

The first urban wildlife refuge in Portland. Wetlands and hiking trails, plus a bike path on the bank of the Willamette River. Good for bird watching, including egrets, hawks, osprey, shorebirds, gulls, terns, hummingbirds, woodpeckers, grebes, falcons, vultures, and other waterfowl. You may even see the elusive nutria or beavers!

"...this adorable corner bistro is one of the best seafood restaurants in town. Nearly all the fish and shellfish here is certified sustainable, ranging from small plates like smoked scallop ceviche with sprouted coriander to family-style feasts like whole cedar-plank-roasted trout with grilled lemons, skyr, and spicy harissa. And instead of treating the aquatic bounty with the usual greasy fry-up or butter-based sauces, preparations here hew to grilled, roasted, or raw, with a heavy emphasis on seasonal vegetables and herbs."
