This is definitely a "must-see" while visiting Portland.  There is no admission fee.  Stroll through the gorgeous rose gardens here.  If it is a clear day, you will be able to view Mt. Hood in the background, and it doesn’t get any better for a Kodak moment.  There is also a nice gift shop where you can purchase souvenirs and many different kinds of "rose" items.  Stationery, candles, Christmas ornaments, bath lotions and shower gels, all with a rose theme.

 There is also a nice grassy area for stretching out on a blanket, making this a great place for a picnic.  Portland is the City of Roses and this gorgeous garden says it all.
