Oaks Amusement Park

Surrounded by the same trees for which it was named, The Oaks, celebrated its ninety-sixth consecutive year of operation in 2001, making it the second oldest continuously operating amusement park in America. Built by the Oregon Water Power and Navigation Company, the park opened on May 30, 1905 to Portlanders who arrived by foot and on horseback, in automobiles, and by boat from the Willamette River. Operates weekends only in the spring and early fall and daily throughout the summer; skating rink operates year round.
