We walked a small portion of this area after visiting the Japanese Gardens across the way. There are too many varieties of roses to name. There is a very helpful map to guide you through the gardens; it also allows you to go to view...More
This garden is free and has the biggest collection of roses I've seen. They have free tours with a docent on certain days (information can be obtained in the souvenir shop of this garden).
Information sheets describe how new types of roses are bred. Beautiful...More
This garden is so massive, that even those who feel they have a big garden will be amazed. I saw it after it was at peak flowering and still was in awe! If you are in Portland, take time to visit. Also, it is absolutely...More
The test garden was a beautiful multi level, multi color, multi scented rose garden. This garden is a free test garden with people creating their own type of roses. Fascinating and colorful! Hundreds of different roses!
Have to visit to experience!
There is parking on the hill to enjoy this venue. Certain times of the year and some weekends, it may fill up quickly, so be aware. The lots aren't huge. I actually rode the Max to the Zoo location. Rode the elevator up and hopped...More
It was definitely worth going to... If you are a botanist, florist, or physiologist I'm sure you would appreciate it more than I did. The bike ride up was beautiful and it is close to the Japanese Garden.
This should be on your itinerary if you visit Portland between May and September. The garden offers hundreds of roses in bloom, and it is very kid-friendly. The kids might not be so interested in the flowers, but they can burn off some energy. Because...More
The Rose Garden is always such a beautiful place (even when not in bloom). The location on the hill gives a great view of the city and Mt. Hood. We go to see the roses, we go for photo shoots, we go for live performances...More

Unfortunately most of the roses will no longer be in bloom. However it is still a beautiful garden with a smaller part of the garden called the Shakespeare Garden that has other kinds of plants and flowers that may still be in bloom. There is also a lovely view of part of downtown Portland plus a walk of metal plates in the ground for each Portland Rose Festival Queen (all seniors in high school going on to college when they were crowned) for the last 100 - 115 years. This gorgeous 5-10 acre Portland Washington Park Rose Test Garden is located in the forested area of The West Hills with a beautiful natural Japanese Garden ($9-$11) just up from the Rose Garden on the other side of the tennis courts. There is also a nice Rose Gift Shop worth seeing at the Rose Garden. About a mile up a beautiful forest walk or drive from the Rose a garden is the very nice Portland Zoo ($11 - $15). It may be overcast and rainy in a November, but the natural forest there with all I have mentioned is beautiful any time of year. The Pittock Mansion a mile or two away off Burnside Avenue is well worth a long steep uphill hike or a beautiful drive too. It is about ($10-$15). Spectacular view of Portland from this 100 year old stunning mansion! These are all some of the most beautiful parts of Portland. Portland is the City of Roses and Washington Park is the largest natural forest within the city limits of any city in the USA. Please come to Portland and breathe in the fresh, clean air in Washington Park, enjoy the view, and see how magical a forest within a city can be. You won’t be disappointed!
