Be Active in Troutdale!


While Troutdale may be the Gateway to The Gorge, there are many opportunities to be active right in the town itself. Troutdale has more than 20 parks and greenways, offering anyone the ability to spend a relaxing afternoon on a quiet river shore, a satisfying morning hike or access to the Sandy River at locations like Glenn Otto Community Park, Lewis and Clark State Recreation Site and the Sandy River Delta. Dog lovers know the Delta as Thousand Acres Park, with 1,400 acres of open field landscape for pets to roam free.

Picnicking is popular at several city parks, with additional unique features like the Imagination Station playground at Columbia and the outdoor fitness trail at Sunrise Park. Baseball games can be found at Reynolds Park in the spring, summer and fall.

Golf has a special place for Troutdale residents and visitors alike. The Edgefield Golf Course is actually two courses at McMenamins. Commonly referred to as “America’s funkiest 32-hole golf facility,” it includes short fairways, mountain views, eclectic sculptures and refreshment stops. Disc golf enthusiasts enjoy the 12 holes at the Confluence Pop-Up Disc Golf Course with its challenging layout and beautiful views of the Sandy River and Broughton Bluff.
