I don’t think there are enough words (or space) to explain how much I love this park. As a little kid I remember doing school field trips to the park, but hadn’t come for about 20 years. With the pandemic I start coming with my own little one and I am pretty sure it saved my sanity these last two years. The demonstration garden in front of the fort especially is one of my favorite places to just sit and enjoy being outside. It has been so much fun teaching my child about all the flowers and vegetables grown there. And for when she needs more room to roam all the fields above and the playground are perfect. I think the only improvement I could ever see being made is for a toddler swing to be added to the playground, but that isn’t enough to deter me from loving this park.

Great place! I love visiting national parks and sights; this one is well organized, clean, and they have a nice garden there too. But I would like to thank their staff; they’re extremely friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable! Especially Ryan and the lady at the counter with stamps in the visitor center. Both were really nice. Thank you! Definitely recommend if you’re in Vancouver and have couple hours.

A great NPS unit if you’re into local history (and history in general). The visitor center and gift shop are open, as are the grounds. Most of the buildings, including the air museum are closed. We were able to tour the “big house” and even got a quick custom tour by the employee who was fabulous. Also, Ryan C. was one of the best park employees I’ve ever talked to. His passion for knowledge and education was unmatched. Our group really appreciated talking with him.
