Klineline Pond

Like I mentioned before, last weekend was very nice and warm and we were itching to do something new. I caught mention of this park in the neighboring town of Vancouver, Wa. I looked it up and Salmon Creek trail runs right by it which was supposed to be good for biking and walking. We were pleasantly surprised by the gem that is this place. If you are a local you need to put this place on your summer bucket list, it might just become your new favorite spot as well. I have a feeling we'll be here a lot this coming summer!
The trail was fully paved and went on for several miles alongside this beautiful creek (which has some nice spots for wading). The path was perfect for kids since it's flat and wide. And NO cars!
Taking a break from riding : )
Such a beautiful place!
When we finished our bike ride we went to Klineline pond to cool off (there is a parking lot right next to the pond and the start of the trial, so you don't have to do any driving once there)
The boys getting goofy!
The water was super shallow at the shore.
We didn't do it this time but the pond is stocked with trout so you can fish here as well.
Eli knows how to sunbathe!

Behind this is also a splash pad and playground.
What more could you ask for in a place.
I think I could live here!
