went to Washington park on a mostly cloudy day. walked through the Vietnam memorial, very nicely executed and then the arboretum (reviewed International rose garden and Japanese garden separately). Covered several miles of trails before returning to the International Rose Garden, my starting point in the morning. trails are gentle, well marked and shady. the diversity of tree types is... More

We dropped by for a short visit thinking that we'd visit all interesting things in the park, turns out it was huge. You could easily spend a day or two exploring the park. Finding parking spaces during busy hours can be a challenge. There are parking meters that accepts both cash & card so that was convenient. The japanese garden... More

We arrived by the Max train fantastic fast way to get there. It was raining and there was nobody there. We had umbrellas and loved the peaceful surroundings. We walked around for about 90 Min then caught the free shuttle back to the train station. The station is amazing with rock core samples to show the geological history of the... More

We liked Washington Park, but we did not like the traffic and road construction. We first planned to go to the Rose Garden and Japanese Garden section, but it was a 'zoo" of traffic. There was zero parking available. So we opted to go to another of Washington Park and went to the zoo and the World Forestry Center instead.... More

We visited the rose garden and the Japanese garden after walking up from the town. We got the red tri met line to just past Providence field and walked up a pretty steep hill into to park. There is a lot of work going on there to the reservoir but it was a good view back to the city. We... More

Visited mainly to see the Japanese garden. It was great. Rose garden as seen from the one mile hike from our parking spot up the hill looked pretty, wish we had the energy to explore it. This was late on a Sunday afternoon, about 3 pm. Weather was really nice, sunny and cool. Maybe that contributed to the parking problem,... More

This urban park is on the edge of the city. Home to the Japanese Garden and is on the hill so views of Portland are real good. Good for a nice walk amongst trees.

We spent a few hours exploring Washington Park and the International Rose Test Garden. Amazing that the park is right in the city. So many green spaces. Lovely!

New York City has Central Park but Portland has one that goes it far better because it overlooks the whole downtown area and our iconic view of Mount Hood. The Rose Garden and the other walking and hiking trails that crisscross this heavily forested and beautiful Urban Park shouldn't be missed. No matter what time of year it is a... More
