Parks and Greenspaces

Collins View borders on Tryon Creek State Natural Area, River View Natural Area, and Marshall Park, but has no city park of its own.

The Lewis & Clark College campus and several cemeteries provide a variety of open and greenspaces for enjoyment.

Tryon Creek State Natural Area

Oregon's only state park within a major metropolitan area has birdwatching, a Nature Center with interpretive exhibits and a store, a picnic shelter, 8 bridges, a wetland boardwalk, and more!

The bike path is a nice way to bike to Lake Oswego.
