Salem Cannery

Welcome to The Cannery! Over 8 acres of Salem’s historic riverfront will be transformed into a new mixed-use entertainment district. The story of the site’s history is told actively through interpretive placemaking elements and passively through reused historic metal archways, fruit tree groves, and overhead stormwater channels. The project provides direct public access to the Willamette River, Mill Creek, and a city park at the confluence of the two.
