  • Bush Park is probably one of my favorite parks in Salem. It’s so beautiful in the spring with the rose and flower gardens. It’s one of my favorite places to take pictures and to just take a quiet stroll to think. It’s also really amazing for runners as there is trails that go everywhere around the park. I definitely recommend going there and checking it out. There are some beautiful examples of plants and shrubs here. I visit often always find something I haven't seen before
  • I wasn't expecting this park to be as large as it was. I'm told it's approximately 88 acres, as large as a lot of farms I'm used to in southern Minnesota. There's a lot to take in here. Bush's Pasture boasts Willamette University's baseball field, heavily wooded forests, immaculately maintained garden plots and flowerbeds, all sorts of lovely tree cover, and plenty of areas to picnic, hike, and play. Very dog-friendly as well! This is only what I've seen so far- I'll update this when I've been around further, since there's more to explore!
