“A View of Downtown Portland”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

A big park with the Japanese Gardens located there; also a train that runs thru it. Good walking trails. Some homeless people congregate there, which can be a negative.

“Drive thru the park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Even if you have rain a drive thru Washington Park and a stop at the forestry center is well worth it. If the weather is decent stroll the Rose Garden with your camera. The smell is oh so great.

“Hiking and trees galore!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

The weather was rainy, but it made the fall colors shine! A wonderful place to spend the day hiking and exploring. I would definitely go back to hike more!

“Washington park has something for all ages”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

beautiful parks - variety of things to see rose garden, japanese garden, zoo, forestry center, etc. Over the years, we've taken our kids there for a enjoyable day out. We do wish that they would make the archery field a lot better though. My boys liked to shoot arrows there as well after a hike. (could mark off distances with signs - better hay stakes and stakes to hold targets, etc..... sounds like an eagle project!)
