Similarly, it is asked, can you swim in Hood River?
Hood River Waterfront Park. The Waterfront Park Beach is a man-made sandy cove cut into the riverbank along the Columbia. This popular swimming beach is close to downtown and a nice place for a picnic or a cool dip on a hot day. Dogs are allowed on leash in the park but not in the beach or swim areas.
Is the Columbia River toxic?
The data is clearer than ever: toxic contamination in the Columbia River Basin is a significant threat to the environment and human health. Contaminants in flame-retardants, pharmaceuticals and other chemicals cause male fish to morph to females during their life cycle.
