More than 195,000 people last year visited Oxbow Regional Park. The magic of the ancient forest, the autumn colors along the Sandy River and the sandy beach are some of the reasons why the park continues to be one of Metro's most popular destinations.
The fall issue of Our Big Backyard, Metro's quarterly parks and nature magazine, features an Oxbow theme. Explore a watercolor illustration of the park, learn about the welcome center opening soon, and get to know the history and features of the park in the Oxbow Field Guide.
Find a copy of Our Big Backyard at a local public library branch, the Oregon Zoo, a Metro park, or at various community centers and senior centers. Or read individual stories online on Parks and Nature News or click the image on the right to read a PDF of the magazine.
