North Fork Park
The land, now called North Fork Park, was the first 'park-designated' land purchase made by Marion County. 8.52 acres of the park is leased from BLM. With the warm water of the Little North Fork, a swimming hole, a sandy beach, and a thirty minute drive from the Salem area, North Fork Park is one of the most popular parks in Marion County. Work relief crews helped develop the park's trail system.
