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.

On nice days, this park can be a fun jaunt. It has a paved loop that makes repetitious laps kind of enjoyable...

Laurelhurst Park is very lively park. Many people use it for doing photo shoots, walking their dogs, and running. It is beautiful, it can give you a sense of what Portland looked like before the city was built. It's a big and bike friendly park in a quiet neighborhood. It has a large pond that you can walk around. It... More

Beautiful big trees, dog park, free concerts in the summer, great for picnics and people watching. I heard it was created by Olmstead of Central Park fame. Don't miss it.

This is a relatively large park (at least in inner SE) with tennis courts, basketball courts, kids games, a large jogging path, a pond and many many trees. It doesn't get too exposed in the summer so it is a perfect place for family BBQ. Often they have free concerts and movie nights during the summer season. Air quality might... More

I live about 8 blocks from this beautiful park! Often on the weekends, I take a walk up the hill to Laurelhurst Park and enjoy the morning. The park is beautiful, a lot of green spaces, and a dog park area. Numerous picnic tables, benches, horseshoe pits, tennis courts, basketball courts and a playground. This park is also a haven...
