ust a spectacular park with tons of trails and walking paths. It is incredibly beautiful. We really liked the Vietnam memorial and Rose Garden. We did not go in the Japanese garden because it was pricey and we are going to Japan so we can see real gardens there. The park opens early for joggers. Easy access by MAX.

This is such a beautiful park and it's just amazing how many different things there are to see and do. The flowers, the greenery, just get out and take a walk and it's like you're in another world. Never the same thing twice.

this really made our trip to portland special. the weather was amazing which helped obviously, because up until this point on our vacation it was nothing but cold rain. the rose garden was delightful, even though much of it still hadn't bloomed, the stuff that was was amazing. i had so much fun just seeing the different types of roses...

Make a visit to the Portland Rose Test Garden a priority. A feast for the eyes and a boost for the spirit.

Rose garden, Japanese garden, and the zoo are just a few of the things to do here. Parking, which can be difficult, is $1.60/hour. Really nice views of the city from the elevated hillside.

I took my 18 mo old granddaughter here on a Sunday morning. The Red Line dropped us nearly at the door and we got $1 off the entrance price when we showed our transit pass. Unlike most zoos, Washington Park Zoo is surrounded by real wilderness. You're not walking from one cement pit to another on cement walks. It's a... More

Took a group of teens there for the Zoo Lights. Weather ended up being crisp and clear. It was nice to walk around with the other parents while our kids took of tour of all the lights. Everyone had a great time. Definitely a yearly tradition.

Rode the Blue Line in and got off 260 ft below ground! Rode the elevator up and headed toward the arboretum. The zoo is right at the top of the elevator but I wanted to do a long hike. The coolest thing was that there was a tree from every continent planted there. I walked the Whittman trail and ended... More
