Where are we going today?
Who loves playing out in the sun! We certainly do! And if you're in Salem, Bush's Pasture Park is a great option for the whole family to get out there and enjoy nature.
Bush's Pasture Park is 90 acres covered with beautiful trees and open meadows. Kids can (literally!) have a field day with all the fields available for playing in! (see what we did there?)
Grab the frisbee, or dust off those bikes and enjoy the space. There are 4 areas with fun play equipment for kids too, so they can really use up all that energy! Climb, fun, hide, and crawl the day away!
There are lovely picnic areas with tables and benches, so why not pack a lunch and really make a day of it? There are horseshoe courts, and even a soap box derby track! Maybe spend the morning making your own soap boxes with the family before taking them down to race?
If the kids love playing in beautiful gardens and looking at all the colorful flowers, they are in luck. The Bush greenhouse and gardens are wonderful to explore, including rose gardens and tulip beds! Pretty!
Feeling like you want to enjoy some art after lunch? Well aren't you just in luck - there's the Bush Barn Art Center and Gallery!
So much more than just a park, Bush's Pasture Park is a great way for kids to leave the TV's, breathe in that fresh air and get active!
When can we go?
5am - midnight
All year round.
Take a packed lunch and enjoy the picnic areas! You can even bring BBQs into the park!.
Any Top Tips?
There's a gazebo to reserve if you wanted space, or grab some of your kids friends and let them all enjoy it together! .

Awesome Park -- I grew-up racing derby cars here as a kid. Lots of good memories!
I've really never seen a park better set-up for family activities, running, tennis, reunions, parties ect... If you live in the area and have never been out to this park -- your really missing out.
