“So Beautiful... not to miss!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

This is one of the most beautiful rose gardens I have ever been at. We truly loved it and took many pics. It was such a beautiful sunny day we did not want to leave. We spent about 2 hours walking around and taking pics but could have stayed longer.

“Unexpected delight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

Who would expect a rose garden in the middle of a city? Portland has it and it is beautiful. We were there in the off season and will have to return when the roses are in full bloom.

“Portland From The Rose Garden”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

The Rose Test Garden sits upon a hill overlooking the city of Portland to the East (Mt. Hood can also be seen from there). So many different types of roses! Best time to visit is in June when the garden is in full bloom!

“Take a walk through the roses”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

This garden is well maintained and ideal for a lovely Sunday afternoon walk. If you visit Japanese Garden you might as well check it out.
