Oregon – Portland (Oaks Park)

On Wednesday, I drove to the Sellwood area of Portland, Oregon.  Near the Sellwood Bridge is an amusement park, called Oaks Park.  (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oaks_Amusement_Park & http://www.oakspark.com/)

The amusement park is more than 100 years old and one of the oldest operating amusement parks in the nation.

When I arrived, the amusement park was emptying (from an end of school year party for middle school kids).  So I walked around taking pictures, as the amusement park was closing down for the day.

I entered through a nice park/picnic area, which overlooks the Willamette River.
