The Talking Water Gardens project, an engineered treatment wetlands, is open to the public seven days a week, sunrise to sunset. Talking Water Gardens is a public works project that cools treated wastewater before entering the Willamette River. Wetland cells are connected by soft-surface walking trails. Many trails are elevated to give visitors a beautiful view of the natural system at work including the plants and wildlife that have found this place as a new home.
