We wandered a few trails for quite some time, looking at al of the trees and shrubs that make this place so wonderful. The trails are well-maintained and not very busy, as many people opt for their cars or the bus to go through the park. My recommendation is to put on your walking shoes and have some fun. The...

The amount of time and effort it takes to keep this in such wonderful care has to be overwhelming. I know virtually nothing about plants, trees, flowers, etc. but if you spend a few hours here, you will definitely take away a new knowledge and appreciation for the world we live. Fascinating!

Another lovely, peaceful and free space to roam and tree-gaze in Portland. Painting there is nice too.

Loved the pine forest and easy trails. Definitely bring appropriate shoes as it was still very muddy after rain.

Portland is an amazing city! Where else can a person hike for miles in secluded forests right in the metropolitan area? The arboretum's 30-some miles of packed dirt & graveled trails wind through flora both native & exotic. The Redwood Trail is particularly spectacular. The Cherry Trail is alive with color during blossom season. The Wildwood Trail that roughly circumnavigates... More

This 180+ acre Arboretum is easy to get to by Max and a must see. This is my second visit as it's one of my son's favorite places. There is such a vast variety of beautiful trees including great Redwoods. It was gorgeous when we visited in mid-March as the Magnolias, Cherry Blossoms and other flowering trees were budding and...

Washington Park is worth a visit. Especially the Rose Gardens. If you feel like a pleasant little side hike while you are there visit the Arboretum. Otherwise I would skip this.

A number of trails- my favorite is the Magnolia trail where different varieties of magnolias were in bloom. Unlike the NE, magnolias bloom here for weeks instead of days. There was also an interesting winter garden and loads of cherry blossoms. Because of Portland's climate deciduous and coniferous trees can all be found. Also great birdwatching so bring binoculars. Great... More

There are enough trails here to keep you busy for hours. I was very impressed not only by the number of different trees, but by how the park is laid out to highlight the different species. I've seen few similar arboretums that are as well marked. Just about the time you ask yourself what kind of tree you're looking at... More
