Great place for a run

Big (but hilly) park that is an easy run from downtown. Also has great views of the city and Mt. Hood.

Lot's to see and do. You can catch the train to the zoo afterward. Lot's of roses and plenty of fresh air. Sort of crowded during the weekends, so if you park a bit away and walk, you will be better off.

There were great trails, although very many switchbacks. We took the bus to the park and then started to walk around. By the time we got to the Japanese Garden, which was very nice, I felt that I had earned the right to see the garden (from the walk) but had to pay the $8 !

This is a beautiful setting on the edge of the city. Great for walking, jogging, and picnicking. The park was very busy when we were there, but there was plenty of room. Parking was plentiful.

In this area, you can choose: to take a short trail-track, visiting children Museum and other museums nearby, Japanese Garden or its main attraction, the Oregon Zoo.

With a spectacular view of downtown Portland and only minutes away from anywhere downtown, the Rose Garden is wonderful. Nestled in the West Hills overlooking the city are hundreds of varieties of beautiful roses, fountains, and views. From May through September take the time to really smell the roses!

Pick a trail and run, bike walk into lush beauty. Wildwood Trail is the longest. Also check out the International Rose Garden and see a spectacular view of downtown Portland while you are at it.

They decorate the entire outdoors during the holidays and have non stop chorus groups that they list schedule on website. It's an annual tradition to go and listen to music in pretty church. Dress warm tho. Entry fees cover their costs so we always donate extra. Since its on east side of town, tons of good restaurant options before or... More

I have been to a number of city parks in my travels, but I have to say that Portland's Washington Park is one of the nicest I've seen. Very clean, pretty and lots of different things to do. Family and I headed here on a rainy day and still found Washington Park a fun place to be just strolling around.... More

While there are a number of "attractions" within the park -- Zoo, Children's Museum, Arboretum, etc.--I enjoy the walk up the hill to get to the park, the Rose Garden, the flowering trees, and the views. All of that is free. If I have the time, I walk here from downtown or The Pearl every day.
