Urban park, especially beautiful when the Rhodies are in bloom. Since there is a long blooming season it is beautiful from January to May, even fun in the rain. Paths and ponds and an easy terrain to enjoy nature.

Perfect rhododendron blooms in season. Across the famous liberal private Reed College and adjacent to Eastmoreland golf course.

And Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden tops them all..... Gorgeous blooms in a very natural setting.... because Rhodies grow "Wild" here in Oregon. Not to be missed..... but get there in May or you might miss the blooms.

The garden was beautiful. It isn't somewhere to go for a long power walk, but a nice stroll while stopping to smell the flowers, enjoy the ponds and watch the birds. I went when the cost was $4.00 but worth supporting the gardens. My only gripe was the ticket takers where not very friendly and did not want to engage... More

This is a fun place I wish we'd discovered sooner. We now take all out of town visitors here. It's free until 10am. It's most amazing when the rhododendron's are in bloom - usually late April to mid-May. There are lots of ducks and geese. It's a little tricky with a stroller but can be done. It's not very wheelchair... More

This is a beautiful garden to walk in. We found it to be nicely landscaped and very peaceful. The ponds with ducks and geese are very picturesque. There isn't a lot of road noise when you're in the park and it seemed to be in a nice neighborhood. We took a bus from where we were staying; when locals on... More

What a very relaxing and beautiful way to spend a morning, wandering among the new and old rhododendrons! There was a variety of colors, sizes and ages. I enjoyed the trunks of the bushes as much as the flowers themselves. There are several waterfalls which provided ideal places for waterfowl and other birds. The entry fee was very minor at... More

Peaceful Saturday stroll through the garden, passed blooming season but still pleasant. Love the ponds, geese, ducks. Very safe, great for families. Bathrooms little hard to find.
