Gateway Nature Preserve

Why We Love It

We love the thoughtful design of the preserve that includes bird feeders, meadows with wildflowers and a beautiful trail that is great for hiking and biking.� There is also a nice dog park, with an area for both small and large dogs.


A nature preserve next to Washington Park, close to downtown- with Salem Creek running through it. The goal of the preserve is to connect the community to the environment while also supporting a healthy ecosystem.
