Commemorative sites at the park include the Battleship Oregon Memorial, a tribute to the "Bulldog of the United States Navy" battleship of 1893. The Japanese American Historical Plaza recognizes Japanese American soldiers, workers, and families who were sent to internment camps during World War II. At Salmon Street Springs, a computer-controlled fountain varies its 185 jets, cycling through three different spurt patterns and 4,924 gallons of water per minute.
Bike paths and public trails weave through the 36-acre park, a popular spot for lunchtime joggers throughout the week and families, couples, and out-of-towners on the weekends. Best known for its spring and summer festivals, the lush tree-lined lawns fill with locals and tourists May to September.
