Yes indeed, walking through some parts of this park feels more like walking in a pine forest, rather than in a park. Though it is beautifully groomed and has some huge trees. I

We took a taxi up the hill to Washington Park and went to the Rose Garden. The roses were not in bloom yet, but it was a beautiful setting. We sat and looked out at Mount Hood. It was a very relaxing couple of hours....More

We started our tour of the gardens at the bottom and made our way to the top up a well defined path. A fair climb but it's worth it, we walked down by a different path, you could taxi etc. to the top and just...More

We waked through Washington Park to get to the Rose Garden and Japanese Gardens. As we got off the bus and started walking up to sidewalk and then into the park the noise of the city was being drowned out by girls. The air was...More

Washington Park seems to be the favorite of Portland community during the weekend. Bikers, hikers, children, couples etc... it is big so walking can be challenging but starting in April ( during weekends only then weekdays in May)there is a free shuttle (every 15 mns)...More

There is more to this park than you realize at first glance. There is more than one play space and the Rose Gardens are pretty much integral to it as well. Excellent slice of Portland.

We enjoyed a wander through the magnolias which were just coming into full bloom. However we got lost in the maze of trails and roads - we found the signposts and maps confusing and unhelpful.

Great place for a home and some sightseeing. On a nice day there is no where better to walk around! Rose garden was nice, nothing in bloom this early though

If you have visitors coming to Portland the Washington Park is the Best. Roses of every make and model, all sizes and the Fragrance is second to none. Benches to share or just look out over Portland thru the tall fir trees even Mt Hood...More

Washington Park is a GREAT place to visit! Take the Zoo Train from the park to visit the world class Zoo, play tennis, visit the Rose Garden, see the Japanese Garden, have a picnic, etc.

My kids and I will be in Portland for just an afternoon and evening, and I had the Japanese Garden on our agenda. Then found out it's actually located in Washington Park where several other places to see are located, too, like the children's museum, zoo, etc. Is everything located so far apart that we'd need to drive and park at the different locations, or do we park in one location and just walk to the locations we want to go?

Hi there. The park is huge and the Zoo is on the opposite end from the Gardens. You could walk it if you felt spry, but I would suggest driving since you have your children with you. They have several places to park in and... More

I agree with Dan D. - it depends on your preferences. We enjoy staying in NW Portland in the Pearl District, because of the restaurants and accessibility to Washington Park. It's all so close you can hike then walk to... More
HI, is there any food available in the park? If so, where? Also, which areas such as the Rose Garden and Japanese require tickets/payment? Or is there an admission just to get into the park. I'm confused; not finding good information on the website. Thanks so much to anyone who can help.

I didn't pay anything but we just walked around. There are several indoor spots that may have food but I didn't go into them I'm sorry I couldn't be more help.
