This park has a great playground for kiddos as well as a large pond where there are plenty of ducks to look at. It is also a park where there are weddings, lots of paths to walk around on, and many other types of activities going on. It is a great place for a date, a picnic, or family fun.

This gem is located on the inner east side of Portland. While not a major tourist destination, it is a nice place for a picnic, stroll, or quiet reflection. For fans of Olmstead Brothers landscaping, it is a classic.

Great walk and view of the city, there are a lot of steep hills. Great for cycling around the park. Some great places to eat and drink after !

best time to come here would be when the rhododendrons are in full bloom. even without that full effect, the garden was truly a pleasure to spent time in, strolling through the meandering lanes shaded by beautiful old trees.

Great place especially for young families at the playground, or to have a picnic while the little ones can run and play. Surprisingly sunny on a nice day even though there are a lot of trees.

Laurelhurst is one of Portland's best city parks. With its towering redwoods, open green spaces, shaded picnic areas, scenic lake and plentiful walking/bike paths, it's perfect for a family outing or for taking a leisurely, meditative stroll away from city stress. The grounds are very well maintained. It's a popular spot for nature lovers and deservedly so.

Beautiful trees, blooming shrubs, and friendly people. Really liked the signs that grade school kids put up about not feeding the ducks.

Nice park located in Portland. Rainy when we were there. Next time we hope it be there on a sunny day and bring a picnic
