Willamette Heights Park

“Scenic vistas of the Willamette River”

Willamette Heights Overlook during spring migration in April produces waves of warblers and other species, similar to those found on Skinner's Butte in Eugene. Common Yellowthroat sings from brushy areas in summer. Scan the open sky to the south for Turkey Vulture and winter raptors. Great Horned Owl and Western Screech-Owls reside in the forested area, along with Golden-crowned Kinglet in winter. Residents include Mourning Dove, Red-breasted Nuthatch, Downy Woodpecker, Steller's Jay, Black-capped Chickadee, Bewick's Wren, and Spotted Towhee. Dorris Ranch, the Willamette River, and Quarry Hill can all be seen from the hilltop.

Spring migration in April produces waves of warblers and other species, similar to those found on Skinner?s Butte in Eugene. Common Yellowthroat sings from brushy areas in summer. Scan the open sky to the south for Turkey Vulture and winter raptors. Great Horned Owl and Western Screech-Owls reside in the forested area, along with Golden-crowned Kinglet in winter. Residents include Mourning Dove, Red-breasted Nuthatch, Downy Woodpecker, Steller's Jay, Black-capped Chickadee, Bewick's Wren, and Spotted Towhee. Dorris Ranch, the Willamette River, and Quarry Hill can all be seen from the hilltop. In Springfield, from South A St, go S on South 2nd St for 0.2 mi. Turn L on South D St, then R onto South 4th St. Where South 4th St ends in a T junction, turn R on Union St. Almost immediately, turn L onto Perry St. At the top of the hill, as the street bends R onto Valley View Ave, you can see the park and gravel parking area.
