    River Access at Columbia Park Closed:
    As of July 22, 2020 the river access point at Columbia Park is closed due to safety concerns and to prevent further erosion of the river bank. The closure is in effect until completion of a river access study and public engagement process for this site and others along the Deschutes River. A park locator is here for other river access locations.

    The park is located along the western edge of the Deschutes River. The park consists of two distinct shelves that step down to the river and a pedestrian bridge. The pedestrian bridge connects to the river trail that runs north and south along the eastern edge of the river. A chain link fence and a steep drop prohibit river access.

    The park features a playground with the “SS Columbia” ship-like structure, a favorite for kids of all ages, and is known as the “Pirate Ship Park” by many in the community.  There is also a picnic areas and large lawn area, perfect for a game of Frisbee or catch.
