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.

This park is beautiful and so much to do. It has a lake to walk around; a great play area for children and just a lovely setting. We were there for a weekend event for bicyclists which featured booths from local providers; food; and even a circus area for children to try out balancing, stilts and more. We had a... More

When I was there I saw so many giant white and yellow butterflies fluttering around. Nice picnic tables to sit and relax under so many big trees. The pond is pretty. And I'm sure there is a redwood next to that pond. I've tried looking it up to confirm and found a little information leading me to believe it might... More

Our B&B the Portland Mayor's Mansion is set adjacent to Laurelhurst Park ... we went on our last day in Portland ... mistake! We should have gone everyday. The park is clean, well maintained and the giant trees are something you will get in few places in the world ... particularly a nice park in the Pacific NW. Very nice... More

This park is huge and it's free. It has many spots where you can sit and enjoy the view (grass and lake) while letting the children run around. It also has a great playground area and basketball courts (which tend to get pretty full). The Portland Church of Christ hosts it's annual Easter Egg Hunt there (the Saturday prior to... More

This is a beautiful park with many walking paths. It's near the Hawthorne district, a fun place to shop and hang out. Have walked the dog here a few time, seen concerts and plays here, and just spent time. In my view, a very enjoyable place to spend some time when you have it.
