An incredible park just a few miles from the city. We went from being in downtown Portland to being in a forest in about 10 minutes. Washington Park has a ton to do, we only spent a few hours one morning and we had a great time. We did a little bit of hiking/walking, saw the rose garden and enjoyed... More

When visiting Portland you must make sure to budget some time to visit the spectacular Washington Park. Drive, take a city bus or a cab/Uber and set aside as much time as you can. The International Rose Test Garden and Japanese Garden are must sees (the former is free while the latter $9.50 for an adult and both can be... More

This is a big park close to the city centre of Portland. It has many attractions, some are paid and some are free. There is a free shuttle that gets you around to all the attractions that run every 15 minutes since you can't walk the whole park on foot in a day and some parts are up hill. There... More

The Rose Garden is a free tour. A good place to sit and have a lunch picnic maybe. Then the Japanese garden it cost $10 to get in and is worth it very nice meditation place go with a friend and stay for a while.

We arrived at Pittock Mansion and started our journey there. The view from Pittock was OK but not as good as I was expecting. We walked on a trail around the park which was nice. The walking/hiking path was easy to follow and was an easy stroll. There is not much scenery per say, it is just a lot of... More

You pay for parking then there is a free shuttle to take you to the different attractions/sites. So many things to do here! We needed time to spend before going on our flight home, so we found this park and had a great time. We saw the Japanese garden, Rose garden, and Holocaust Memorial. Both gardens were spectacular. I can't... More

We visited this park and were blown away by its' size and all that it offered. There were special gardens like the Japanese Garden and the rose Garden, a zoo and tennis courts, bike trails, children's play area, an amphitheatre and more.. What a terrific resource ! You can easily spend an entire day enjoying outdoor activities and not even... More

There is something for everyone here. My personal favorites are The Japanese Garden (best in North America), The Rose Garden (an international test garden), and the Hoyt Arboretum (lovely hikes through groves of different trees). There is also a Discovery Center, Zoo, and other assorted places to picnic, hike, or just sit and enjoy the view of Mt. Hood. No... More

Intl RoseGardens and Japanese Gardens worth a visit. Took the Hop On/Off Trolley and took the train service back to City Center.
