We came here expecting a greenhouse or some gardens on level land. Instead, it's a series of hiking trails on hilly terrain through forests. They have a wonderful variety of species here, especially examples of redwoods and sequioas; you almost feel you're in the Redwood National Forest. Like the International Rose Test Garden (also in Washington Park), this is free,... More

Hoyt Arboretum is part of Washington Park. It is free and suitable for walk, jog or hike. I went this morning combining Vietnam Veterans Memorial and Holocaust Memorial. It is spacious, peaceful and quiet place for you to enjoy nature. You could choose any length of hikes according to your ability. Pick up a map from the visitor information centre... More

Thousands and thousands of species of both native and exotic trees. Great walking trails. Hard to believe you are in the city. Great way to spend an afternoon.

We enjoy walking at Hoyt Arboretum in the morning. There are enough people around to feel comfortable but not crowded. It is quiet though you can hear birds chirping. You will have to pay for parking; we are comfortable with spending $2 for such a treat. The circular upward pathway around the Vietnam Memorial is a nice path with lovely... More

I am a tree nut, so this park was perfect for me. Winding paths (some steep) through the woods populated with huge varieties of different species of tress was a wonderful way to soend a warm Oregon afternoon. The trails were not marked quite as well as I could have used, so at a few points, I got lost, but... More

I live at the base of Washington Park, and I take the Wildwood trail there at least once per week. Our family belongs, and our son volunteers at least weekly. The Hoyt Arboretum is a world class destination, and I highly recommend it. Be sure to stop at the visitor center first and plan your trip. Many plants bloom seasonally,... More

A wide assortment of meandering trails lead one through beautifully lush areas. Educational as well as peaceful. There are also spots to just sit and soak it all up. Worth a stop especially if already in Washington park.

Close enough to town and a wonderful morning or afternoon ramble for you and your guests. Not always easy to park, so we tend to favor an earlier start. Great walks with attractive specimens and good views.
