Fall color on the Yamhill River near the Yamhill Locks Park.
Listed on the National Historic Register, this 7.1-acre park features the remains of the old locks that once permitted boats to navigate up the Yamhill River to McMinnville. Meandering paths and picnic areas, under a canopy of ancient Douglas-fir, allow for nice views of both river and locks.
In 1959, the United States sold the locks, dam, and associated land to Yamhill County for ten dollars.
