Outdoor Art at the Willamette River in Lake Oswego
Hike about 7 miles, mostly on forest trails in Tryon (round trip- so 3.5 miles each way) to see the impressive outdoor art honoring Oregon’s Poet Laureate William Stafford. Located in Foothills Park and on the banks of the Willamette River, this art installation is approached by hiking on several trails in Tryon Creek State Park. We’ll also check out Lake Oswego, known for it’s public sculptures and a park commemorating the site of the first iron works on the West Coast.
In addition to being Oregon’s most well known poet, William Stafford was also a professor here at Lewis & Clark College from the 1950s until 1980.
