Have a Family-Friendly Adventure
Just a short drive from Salem, kids of all ages can find fun at the Enchanted Forest, a family-owned theme park. In Salem, the Observation Deck at the Oregon State Capitol is open for tours at select times during the summer months and offers 360-degree views of the Capitol grounds and beyond. You’ll even get to see Salem’s famous gold man, a 23-foot statue of a pioneer, up close!
Catch a home game of the Salem-Keizer Volcanoes, the local Minor League Baseball team and affiliate of the San Francisco Giants, at the ball field in Keizer, Oregon. Afterwards, challenge the family to a round of 18-hole disc golf, set in the beautiful greenery of Keizer Rapids Park.
Gilbert House Children’s Museum, which is open year-round, has an outdoor playground perfect for the sunny, summer months. This unique children’s museum provides hands-on learning opportunities and encourages creative play. Looking to beat the heat? Take a dip in one or all of the five pools at the Dallas Aquatic Center in Dallas, Oregon.
