“Large park with something for everyone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012


Washington Park is a huge park just five minutes away from downtown Portland. At the park you'll find: International Test Garden, Portland Zoo, Children's Museum, World Forestry Center, Holocaust Memorial, Vietnam Memorial, a Japanese Garden, an arboretum with 12 miles of walking trails, and several playgrounds. I sent 6 hours exploring the park and could have used more.

“City's Finest Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

It's the best, and Portland has a lot of wonderful parks worth seeing. But if you're just going to see one, this is it.

“Fantastic walks and things to see.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

How ever long you have the park is great for a wonder with views and fresh air. We didn't have long but had a lovely walk around the Arboretum.

“A very special place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

Wonderful to have such an oasis in the middle of a major metropolitan area. People who visit from the Midwest are blown away by the huge trees and various shades of green throughout the year.

Loved it and went back the next day, but no apparent, efficient shuttle service or information available.
