A Portland favorite! When it comes to summer get-togethers, the picnic grounds at Oaks Amusement Park are a great choice. Whether you’re planning a birthday party or corporate team building function, this place is sure to have the right amenities (hint: alcohol service is available!) Be sure to check out their mini golf rentals also!

Blue Lake

Get out of the city and escape to Blue Lake Regional Park. Just 14 miles east of downtown, enjoy nature at this beautiful natural lake. The amount of outdoor activities you can do here are virtually endless, great for corporate team-building! Rent paddle boats, play disc golf on their 18-hole course or play a match of volleyball! If your party is big or if you’re looking for something a little more formal, check out their Lake House. The perfect outdoor destination for a corporate event!
