Washington Park is easily accessible from the SW part of Portland, bordering a few major roads, the zoo, and Burnside. I was staying at Hotel deLuxe just down the hill, and hiking up Salmon and Park Place to the Park served as a great start to my workout in Washington Park. The grounds are beautifully kept. There are paved roads... More

If you like trail running, this is the place! This park ties into the zoo and there are a ton of great trails. The Rose Gardens when in bloom are gorgeous and a lot of photo opps. They also have concerts in the warmer/non-rainy months which are always a fun time and outdoors experience!

Wow you get here by light rail. Portland Zoo is whole day matter, if you take transit don't forget to show your pass/ticket you will get $2 off admission. Same for childrens museum-what a fun place for about ages 10 and under. Good for older kids as well but I think more for younger crowd. Well I had a blast... More

Nature is everywhere! However, if you truly love nature, then you would love this park. The hikes are spectacular and the views from inside your car are priceless.

We did the tram tour through most of the park because it's so big. We walked the rose garden and intended to walk the Japanese Garden also, but we ran out of time. It was truly the most beautiful public park i've ever seen! I can't wait to go back and explore more of it!

Parking is never easy but not out of the question. The Zoo if nearby for a fee $$$ and the children love all the attractions. Food is available. Be sure to pick up maps to get the lay of the land. I personally skip animal attractions with cages.

70" of rain a year what can you expect. We visited in December so none of the roses were blooming. We plan to go back in the spring and really explore this area when it is not raining. We hope!

There are a lot of superlatives for this lovely park in the hills of SW Portland overlooking the river and the city. It has the Zoo and many lovely gardens. Great walking. Beautiful any time of year. Recommend it for all,.
