Oaks Amusement Park

Located in Portland's historic Sellwood neighborhood, Oaks Park has been "where the fun never ends" since 1905! Oaks Amusement Park is the last of the historic "trolley parks" still in operation in the northwest and among the oldest continually operating amusement parks in America. "The Oaks" first opened its gates to eager visitors on May 30th, 1905, as a way of boosting ridership on the area's emerging interurban transportation system. Arriving via streetcar, visitors to the park were thrilled by exotic animals, nightly fireworks, a bathhouse, death-defying amusement rides, and that latest of inventions – electric lights! "The Oaks" is proud to have offered safe, wholesome, family fun to our neighbors for over a century. Today when visitors walk through our gates they are delighted by a uniquely Portland blend of modern thrills and turn-of-the-century charm on a midway that houses everything from the vintage roller skating rink at one end to the state-of-the-art Adrenaline Peak Roller Coaster at the other. The goal of "The Oaks" remains the same as it began a century ago, to give our neighbors a thrilling and affordable day of fun right in their own backyard.
