Don't get run over by the unicycles, scared off by the accordion players, or blinded trying to get a look at all the tattoos against Portlanders' ghostly white skin. Just bring some pbr a blanket and a bike and make an afternoon of it.

Great place to visit, year round. Lovely trees and fabulous spot to picnic! Good mix of people and lots of grass to lounge about. Can't wait for summer to come again and we'll be back.

I have been running in this park since the mid-90's. This park beautiful with flowers and shrubs, a lake in the center. A great shady place to run, including stairs if you desire that type of workout. The park is not that big, so I run to and from and do laps and well worth it for the scenery!

This is a great place to walk, work out, see nature and just a great little oasis in the middle of Portland. And, when you're done at the park, take a walk around the surrounding neighborhood. Wonderful old and beautiful homes to enjoy.

Our photographer took us here for pre-wedding portraits. It is a very beautiful park with wide pathways that take you through forests of mature fir trees. A large pond is located near the center of the park. There are plenty of benches and places for picnics. Also wide expanses of green areas for laying about.

Located in on the edge of a somewhat ritzy part of old Portland, Laurelhurst Park is a great place for a stroll or picnic with the family. The duck pond is big and tremendously popular with the kids. It's a quiet get-away in the close-in northeast sector of the city. Portland has a lot of beautiful parks, so this is... More

Laurelhurst Park is usually my go to park for picnics. I am a SE Portland native, and this pretty and diverse park has all the elements I like in one place. Trails, majestic trees, duck pond-even a dog park and basketball courts. Even walking through the surrounding neighbor is fun as the homes are old Portland and beautifully maintained.

This is a super nice park near downtown when you can escape the city, see the beautiful flowers, the lake, the birds and let your dog run off leash in the special area. It's a nice place to hang and relax, or you can jog around the park on the many paths.

Laurelhurst Park is a landscaped city park in a city full of urban parks. This one is special because it was designed in the manor of Fredrick Law Olmstead (Central Park in NYC) by his son, John. It appears to be carved from the natural landscape but its meandering paths and unexpected ponds and vistas were all planned. It is... More

It's a bit overrun and goose poopy, but otherwise a lovely park with elegant trees in a lovely neighborhood.
