Hayden Island, which is within the city limits of Portland, Oregon, is a small island community located in the Columbia River. It sits right next to the Washington-Oregon state line between Vancouver, Washington, and Portland. The only way on or off the island, besides boat, is the Interstate 5 Bridge.

Hayden Island is home to roughly 2,500 residents who live in condos, standalone homes, an RV park, and house boats. Hayden Island is also known for its several marinas and yacht clubs, local restaurants, the Jantzen Beach Shopping Center, water recreation rental services, and hotels. There are no schools or churches located on Hayden Islands, so residents must leave to find these services. Additionally, most of the developed land is on the southeast part of the island. The northwest part, also known as West Hayden Island, is an undeveloped nature preserve that is not open to the general public.

While half of Hayden Island is a nature preserve, the part of the island open to the public is largely artificial terrain. However, due to what natural terrain is left, there are some nice trees that will provide shade during sunny, summer days. Thankfully, there are plenty of sidewalks throughout the island, but you will still want to be careful around the Jantzen Beach Shopping Center as there tends to be heavier traffic than the residential areas of this island community. 

Finally, Hayden Island is also rather flat, so you and Fido shouldn't have issues running into steep or unwelcome hills in this neighborhood. 

Besides Interstate 5 which runs through the island, North Hayden Island Drive is the main road through this community. The major local shopping complex sits off this road, so traffic may be more congested or going at a faster speed. Hayden Island is bordered by the Columbia River on all sides and Tomahawk Island to the southeast.

There are two greenways on Hayden Island, however, as previously mentioned, the West Hayden Island nature preserve is not open to the public. The only other greenway on this island is Lotus Isle Park, located in the southern part of the neighborhood. 

Lotus Isle Park is a 1-acre greenway with paved paths, a playground, places to sit and rest, and an area for picnicking. This small greenway is an ode to the 128-acre amusement park, named the Million-Dollar Pleasure Paradise, that once took up much of Jantzen Beach and the surrounding area. While the amusement park closed in the 1930s, at least you and Fido have a small green space to explore and enjoy!

Unfortunately, the nearest greenways to the south in Portland are all community centers or golf courses. To the north, in Washington, you will find some smaller, residential parks like Esther Short Park and Playground, Memory-Mill Plain Park, and Marshall Park.
