So much to do so little time. There is something for EVERYONE in this park. The Zoo, the International Rose Test Garden, Playgrounds galore and the Pittock Mansion. Love this place. Great place to relax and read or walk your legs off.

The park is expansive and not typical of what I thought a city park would be. Just looking at the map, I could not tell that the park covered so many elevations. There is a free shuttle, a white/purple bus that loops around the park and that makes it easy to get around.

Beautiful park. We took the lite rail in from downtown Portland for $6 round trip. There is a free shuttle that takes you to all the attractions in the park (from the zoo parking lot). Beautiful area to spend the day. Really enjoyed it.

This wonderful complex of parks sits right in the city of Portland. It offers way to much to see and do in a single day. I took in the rose garden, the Japanese Garden and the Arboretum. Use the free shuttle service. I did not pay attention to it until after I had exhausted myself walking up and down hills.... More

Stumbled on this by accident. Lots of nice hiking trails, was a bit crowed. Hard to believe that outside of the park is such a busy city, the trees and animals make it seem like another world. We parked in one of the lots deep inside the park, the ones at the entrances were extremely crowded.

I live near Washington Park and frequently walk to the Rose Garden, Vietnam Memorial and Holocaust Memorial. I have not been to the zoo for a while for other reasons but find walking through the park enjoyable and peaceful. There are places to relax with a picnic, read a book or just "be". The zoo and Japanese Gardens are here... More

Washington Park is an amazing place to visit any time of the year. Beautiful old trees picnic areas and quiet places to read a good book or just relax. Accessible by driving or best bet is to take the TriMET max there. Stress and parking free then. Our day was filled with a nice picnic seein the forever beautiful variety... More

Just driving through the park is a pleasure. Get out and take some of the well done paths. We especially liked the Veteran's Walk and walls. Be aware some areas will require payment for parking.
