Oakridge Greenwaters Park is located alongside the picturesque Middle Fork of the Willamette River in Oakridge, Oregon. Its convenient location just off highway 58 makes it a great pit stop for anyone traveling through, but one can easily spend some time here.

The Willamette River is the main focal point of Oakridge Greenwaters Park. The beautiful waters are great for swimming in during the summer, and fishermen will enjoy trying their luck here at the park. A footbridge leads across the river offering great views. You’ll also find some short hiking trails on the opposite side of the river including the Greenwaters Trail.

The park has picnic tables and grills scattered alongside the river making it a great place to lunch. You’ll also find plenty of wide open space to toss a frisbee or kick a soccer ball. There are also tennis courts here.

The park is home to the Banner Bank Amphitheater which, during summer months, is home to Concerts in the Park.

Lastly, Oakridge Greenwaters Park has some interesting attractions including the 1977 Hills Family Cabin, a unique Totem Pole, and a memorial to Maximo Yabes, Oakridge local, who served and died in the Vietnam War. He was awarded the Medal of Honor posthumously.
