“1.55 Acres. Located on the Clackamas River in the 82nd Drive commercial area, High Rocks Park is used year round by fishermen and during the summer by some picnickers and swimmers. The lower level, which is subject to yearly flooding, is unimproved. High Rocks Park Lifeguard Program: An agreement between the City of Gladstone, the City of Oregon City and American Medical Response (AMR) continues the lifeguard program each summer at the High Rocks area beginning on Memorial Day and continuing through Labor Day. This service, which is provided at no cost to either city, is intended to reduce water related accidents along this hazardous stretch of the Clackamas River. ”

“Access our super serene river area. You can also get to the shops at the central village thru the park. Head down Failing St. take a rt on Edgewater, at the end follow the trail all the way to river st. Take a right at the parking area head on the trail up the hill. It will spit you out at the Public Library. if you take a right on the earlier two trails before the bridge you will end up on Buck St. at the top of the first trail on the right is an incredible view of the river. Check it out! The first left after you pass the homes on Edgewater, will take you down to the river. The whole shore is public domain to the high water line. Stroll to your heart's content. ”

“Local secret, next to hiking trails overlooking Willamette River with Falls View and Pioneer Cemetery near by. Canemah Children’s Park is perched above the Willamette River adjacent to Metro’s Canemah Bluff natural area. This neighborhood park offers a sense of Oregon City’s past. Originally part of the Canemah historic village, this area was an important Native American site and at one time was a thriving riverboat community.”
