“A lovely, quiet view of the river~”

Takena Landing Park
Ranked #9 of 25 things to do in Albany
Attraction details
Reviewed 25 April 2016

Last week, following unusual hectic events, I found myself driving over to Takena Landing Park. I sat at the picnic table with a book, sitting in the sunshine, while frequently glancing up and quietly watching the river flow. It was a wonderful time to spend an hour of quiet reflection.

There is good parking spaces available in the lot, and at the time there were only three other cars parked there. I am assuming people were enjoying the trail that goes alongside the river.

This is a special place, that I find I will take advantage again. So very lucky that Albany has this location to us here in Linn and Benton counties.

Enjoy~

This park has so much to offer. I often just like to take a book and read in my car by the river on a rainy day. If it is a good day their is a 3.5 round trip level nature trail that is beautiful in any season and boarders the Willamette River to the south and a golf course to the north. Runners,walker and dogs on leashes can all be found on a typical day. The city also has installed a disc golf course that meanders through the wooded areas from the entrance off Hwy 20 to the large parking lot. I the summer you can launch a kayak or motor boat from the dock and take the view in from the river.

Looking for a shady, cool walk or run? This is what you're looking for. This flat trail is a roundtrip 3.5 miles that offers glimpses of the river, farmland, and wildlife. The boat Landing offers a picturesque start and finish as well as picnic tables. Might not be the best winter trail (muddy) but lovely in the summer.

Our whole family's been going to the Concerts in the park for years, they're always fun, not too crowded and have a variety of Styles of music from Rock to Jazz. It's a great laid back way to spend a summer evening!

Today's hike along the Willamette River was noted by gangly blackberry vines and outstretched Nettles reaching for the sun, narrowing the trail down to a slender one lane in some places. Due to a mild winter and that it's not yet summer season when the trail will be trimmed, I would not recommend biking or wearing shorts!
