Oaks might not be the largest amusement park you've ever seen, but it is cozy and welcoming in its own way.

It was opened in 1905, so it has a long tradition, and it has a selection of traditional rides with a modern twist. One of the best parts of the park is its skating rink, which is open all year round, and which has its own pipe organ.

If you are not into the classic amusement park rides, you can always go and have a picnic in Oaks instead, the picnic grounds are very pleasant, especially in summer.

Address:
7805 SE Oaks Park Way, Portland, OR 97202, USA

Price:
$14.75
