I've been visiting Washington Park for many years. I've been to the zoo, Japanese garden and Rose garden. All great places, but I did not realize that there were great hiking trails throughout this park. We went hiking on a pretty hot day, but fortunately most of the trails are shaded. Nothing too strenuous, but really enjoyed hiking to places... More

This park has so much to offer: International rose test gardens, bleeding heart garden, picnic area, sit in the sun areas, tennis courts, fountains, Statue of Sacajewea, the Holocaust memorial, decent, clean public bathrooms. Nice place to chill out.

We went to Washington Park for the rose garden and the Japanese gardens. Roses were in full bloom everywhere and we enjoyed a happy thirty minutes wandering and smelling the flowers and taking pictures for all the people who were trying to take selfies. There's an $11 (I think) entry fee for the Japanese gardens, but for 1.5-2 hours of... More

We journeyed to the park and visited the Rose Garden (free!) and took some books and relaxed at the amphitheater area, which was just next to the Rose Garden. Parking was cheap ($1.60/hr) and we loved exploring and relaxing.

A huge park and a great place to explore and hike. I love the Washington outdoors in the summer. This park has a lot to offer – a beautiful rose garden, a japanese garden, a zoo, arboretum and many others. I am very impressed. I’ll definitely come back and check out other parks of the park.

This park has a little of everything: walking, running, the rose test garden, tennis courts. Nice evening stroll park, well lit and totally safe. Lots of parking in all areas. Great views of the city.

You should probably spend most of a day here but even a tour bus through it is a must for this city. Views are tremendous. Huge giant redwood trees, and many types of gardens and monuments, including the Japanese Gardens. Really helps to have a narrator than do it by yourself, as you would not know the history which is... More

Located above the city, and containing both the Rose Garden and the Japanese Garden, as well as the Aquarium, Washington park has got it going on. There are trails for walks and picnic areas. Even if you never leave your car, it is a beautiful area to drive through. Public transportation runs right into the center of the Park, so... More
