Marshall Park Attractions
The neighborhood shares a name with Marshall Park, a popular spot for enjoying the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest. The property the park is built on was a gift from F.C. and Addie Marshall. Their intention was to create a recreational area for public use. Marshall Park certainly lives up to the original vision and includes hiking trails located over the middle of a 400-foot canyon. In addition, there is a waterfall right in the park, as well as a stone bridge which spans over Tryon Creek.
The Jensen Natural Area is another location for enjoying the outdoors, with more than 2 acres of green space.
Marshall Park is located near Collins View, which is home to a number of amenities such as Market of Choice, Chez Jose, and more. Lewis and Clark College is also located in Collins View, and offers community activities such as sporting events, lectures, and more.
