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.
There were lots of rides….
the Scream’n’ Eagle…
the Rock & Roll…
