“Perfect for a jog/walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

Beautiful park for a casual walk or someone training for a marathon. In the same area is the Japanese Garden and the Zoo, both great places to go. You can head up here for the day and do a few things!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

We walked up path to Pittock Mansion - it took a while, but so worth it. It's beautiful and very peaceful.

“Wow - what a treasure in an urban community!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

We had a great hike in this forest. Fabulous vegetation, groomed trails. Easy hike - although some better directional signage would be helpful.

“A very special urban forest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

A park with much to offer. Well signed, parking is easy and walking from public transit a breeze.
The Test Rose Garden always a favorite; particularly as the Rose Festival approaches

“Just a few minutes away.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

No matter where in Portland you are, you are minutes away from what feels like a complete escape back to nature. A lot of people have worked to keep this huge park safe, unspoiled, and available to all.
