Sorosis Park is a blink and you'll miss it place, but this is one park you don't want to miss. Sitting on top of a hill that overlooks a gorgeous view of the Columbia Gorge, it is 15 acres of space filled with everything from tennis courts, Frisbee golf and even a huge playground with a dragon on it!

This 15-acre park is the largest in The Dalles, and includes picnic area, playground, rose gardens, tennis court, frisbee golf, and walking trail. The Veterans Memorial is on the overlook point. The park was founded by the Sorosis Club, an early-day national womens group. The local chapter also founded City Park, the Carnegie Library, and saved Fort Dalles Surgeon's Quarters from demolition. Sorosis is from the Greek meaning a multiple fruit formed from many flowers. The word "soror" means "sister" in Latin. Located at the summit of Scenic Drive, famed photographer Carlton Watkins referred to this point as "Sunset Hill."
