Nature at its finest

Watched Cinderella ( the original animated Disney version) in the park last month. Beautifully maintained. Nice sidewalks & lake walks. Lovely trees & native plants. Beautiful.

This park was designed by Mr. Olmsted, the designer of Central Park in New York City, and it has the same feel. Pleasant walking paths around a lake, and some play areas too. If you want to delve deeper into park design and landscape architecture in the Portland area, look up a book called "The Legacy of Olmsted Brothers in... More

Great place to walk both morning and evening. Large trees and very well kept open space. Pretty lake makes the park special.

A giant shady park with room for picnics, dogs to run, a lake, and many trees. I bike or walk there. It's easy to reach by bus or car too.

Large park that feels small. Totally safe feeling at least in the early evening. I haven't been at night. Lots of family and dogs, really restores your faith in neighborhoods.

A friend suggested that my wife and I meet him for a picnic in the park. We found a large shade tree and set up our goodies. No matter how many times I visit the park, it always delivers.

A classic urban city park kids and dogs of all ages. The network of walking trails are readily accessible form various points around the perimeter. Recent pond renovations enhance the aquatic features. The off-leash dog park, although not enclosed, is adequately buffered from the streets. Just be mindful of traffic along the busy Cesar Chavez/39th Ave. side. Keep the kids... More

Amazing woodland in the middle of Portland's Laurelhurst neighborhood. You see people walking, biking, relaxing, and generally enjoying "the green".. It's easy to lose track of time as you wander, and so amazing to re-emerge onto a busy Portland Street. Traffic noises seem to disappear inside Laurelhurst. Families, joggers, runners--room enough for all!

Laurelhurst Park is ideal with its trees, grass, lake, and areas dedicated for exercising dogs. Our son and daughter-in-law were married in the park. The wedding site was surrounded by trees, on a hill, and somewhat secluded from the other park activities. We have spent time in the park on every visit to Portland. Access is easy for walking, biking,... More

Great for: gatherings, Shakespeare in the Park, reading on a bench, sledding in the winter if it snows, relaxing walk or run. I've been here at all hours of the day and night, and it always feels safe. There are bathrooms, as well, which work and stay relatively clean. Bring a picnic and hang out. Many summer activities here, but... More
