“A Garden for all seasons”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

I visited in the winter and yet there were plenty of botanicals to see. There are 20 different specialty gardens within the grounds. The seasonal conifers and pines were arranged and labeled to enjoy during the winter months. I especially liked the Rediscovery Forest with the deer roaming the area.

“Lovely showcase”

It is a pleasure to stroll through this expertly landscaped series of garden spaces to admire the beautiful plants, hardscape, and views. This is a wonderful place to get ideas for improving your home garden.

“Well worth a visit or many!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

I have lived in Oregon all my life and only 20 minutes from the Oregon Garden but just went for the first time last Earth Day. It was free to get in, lots of great activities for the kids but what a fantastic place to explore. I am an outdoors person and love gardens but this place is truly one of a kind. Please don't miss it when you are in the area, it struggles financially as it is a little off the beaten path but hey so is Butchart Gardens right?! Check it out and you will agree it is lovely.

“Outside of World-class Garden you can't go wrong.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

I have been to some of the nicest gardens in Europe. I have been to some of the nicest ones here in the United States and Canada. I will say on a scale of 1 to 10 the world class ones would be a 10, Oregon Gardens is a respectable 6 or 7.

“It's nice”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

Small, walk-able, well-cared for with a nice variety of plants and flowers: A nice diversion, but if you've been to other botanical gardens, this is on the less-impressive end.
