I was visiting my son and daughter in Portland, and we went hiking at Washington Park on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. We only had about 1 1/2 hour to explore, so skipped the zoo, Rose Garden, and other attractions (we originally planned to go to the Japanese Gardens but they are closed for expansion from early Sept. until March 2016)....

It is hard to believe this sprawling and gorgeous park is mere minutes from the heart of downtown! The park is so serene and peaceful, even when packed with visitors. The rose gardens were gorgeous and the many monuments and memorials (especially the Holocaust and Vietnam Memorials) are well worth a visit. The only downside is that you must pay... More

This is definately a great place to see, old growth Cedar trees, Rhododendrons blooming in the spring, picnic tables, huge fountain, play area for kids and a spectacular view of downtown Portland. Its really a must.

Washington Park has a lot to offer. The Rose Gardens, the Japanese Gardens, the train, the zoo... we spend a full day here on every visit to Portland.

Portland is very lucky to have such a marvellous park. Though park is an understatement. We got the NS streetcar down to SW Taylor from our hotel and then walked to the park. The entrance was about a mile and a half but it was a pleasant walk. We then walked up to the rose garden (beautiful), mostly uphill but... More

Don't know much about roses but the garden was amazing. The Japanese gardens were under construction and closed but taking the walk through the rest of the park, while physically tiring was aesthetically pleasing. A must see if you are in Portland

Very pleasant park to stroll through but beware certain paths are very hilly and you wouldn't know simply from the GPS. Plan for this if you go with seniors or anyone with trouble climbing hills or stairs. A pleasant side trip and not crowded at all. The Holocaust memorial is quite unique.

One of the nicest parks I have ever visited. Could spend days exploring it. The trees are soaring giants, Peaceful, beautiful, not to be missed! Take in the Rose Garden and the zoo while you're there.
