“Beautiful plants and places to relax”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

If you can hit the right time when the rhodies bloom, this place is great. It makes for nice relaxing walks and has good areas to sit.

“Flower power”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

The rhodies are at peak in May/June and this is the best place to see over 400 varieties. The park is still a good bet the rest of the year for the walk, the ponds, streams and wildlife.

“Springtime blossoms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Strolling beside the lake, ponds, and waterfall when the azaleas and rhododendrons are out is very peaceful. It's quite near Reed College, so can be combined with a walk in the beautiful grounds there.

Spectacular during blooming season, Nice walking area other times. Has a pond that is good for feeding the ducks with kids or grandkids.
