Necanicum Estuary Natural History Park – Seaside Oregon

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
My RVing lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort in Seaside, Oregon. I’ve been here several times before. I plan to depart from here June 15th. I’ll slow my pace and spend the rest of the Summer in the State of Washington.


A few days ago I visited this place.


Here’s what the City of Seaside says about this park…


Over the last few decades, day trippers and overnight visitors have frequented Seaside’s boardwalk, drawn to an easy-going and scenic coastal lifestyle.  Increasingly, visitors to Seaside will also be drawn to the natural environment of the rivers, forests and estuaries, in addition to the waves and the sand.  They will learn of the powerful coast-shaping forces of the tsunami, the difficult path of the Coho salmon and the cycle of nutrients formed by the tides.

The Necanicum Estuary Natural History Park will be a gateway to the coastal environment of Seaside.  The park is an opportunity for the City of Seaside to shape their identity as a destination rooted in the natural coastal environment.  Located throughout the urban fabric of Seaside with sites along Highway 101, the park will welcome people to the city and the estuary.  It will be a hub at the center of a vast network of open space, trails and habitat that stretches to the Columbia River and to the headwaters of the Necanicum River.  Ultimately, the City of Seaside will be seen as a city within a park that includes a necklace of restored rivers, coast, and forest.

Located across from Seaside High School on North Holladay, this park has a boardwalk and viewing deck, estuary and beach access, and excellent wildlife viewing opportunities.
