“Walking Tours” provide leisurely occasions to enjoy the pleasures of Salem’s natural beauty and the historic character of our city. They introduce visitors to our historic neighborhoods, follow creeks in urban parks, cross the Willamette River on the Union Street Railroad Pedestrian Bridge and experience Salem’s the important place in Oregon History. These photo albums may be enjoyed online or as self-guided walks through the city.
Please contact us for any corrections. We also welcome additional information about these or other historic properties in the walks.
NOTE: Since we originally constructed the Riverfront Park walking tour, there has been a major park alteration with the addition of the Peter Courtney Minto Island Bridge. We have redesigned the tour to include this feature. New signage in the park shows that bridge at upper right corner:
Here is a view of the bridge celebration on August 2, 2017:
