“Nice trees”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Loved the big trees and they gave off wonderful shade. Watch out for the squirrels and dogs that should be on a leash.

“Classic neighborhood park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Love the way the neighborhood used the park. Picnics, sports, dogs getting exercise, people playing music, lovers. It was all there. A mini version of New York City's Central Park. Children's art featuring birds found at the park was displayed on the fence around the pond. Very sweet, community feel.

“A Lovely Local Park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Laurelhurst Park sits in the residential area of the same name. There is street parking or you can ride your bike or walk to it. It has different activity areas. We were here in early August. Three grandchildren, two sons-in-law and myself walked there in early August. The kids were happy to be in the park. There was some outfit that was teaching people how to climb to the top of trees using a "rope elevator". It's self propelled. They all tried it and one of the eight year olds made about forty feet to the top. His father, uncle,cousin and twin didn't make it to the top but they all had fun. It's quite heavily treed anf a good amount of open space.

“Gorgeous Park in a Beautiful Neighborhood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

If you are in Portland for a few days, do take the time to walk the streets of Laurelhurst, one of Portland's many lovely neighborhoods. Laurelhurst Park, designed by the Olmsteads, is a delight to walk through, reminiscent of parts of Central Park in NYC.

“Visit if you are from out of state”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

If you are not from the area this park is a must see for the giant trees. It's a large park with trails and an off-lease area for dogs.
