Beautiful flowers!!!
May 2021
We came on a drizzly Monday and it just happened to be free admission that day! Lovely time walking the grounds and seeing all the different colors. Several waterfalls too! Not much parking there but we got lucky and happened upon one car leaving as we came into the lot.

Staff made nasty assumptions about our children and were unkind to us and extremly rude.
Apr 2021
It is very unfortunate the experience I had today at this beautiful place. My complaint is about the hired staff. We were a group of 3 mom's and our children looking forward to today's visit. The staff at the Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden clearly need training on how to speak to the public. The young man, who made nasty assumptions about us 3 mom's visiting with our children were unacceptable. The way in which he spoke to us about our children was done in the most rude way I have ever experienced. I strongly encourage whoever manages the staff at this facility to teach their employees how to properly, kindly, and respectfully speak to the general public with out making nasty assumptions about them and their children. How very unfortunate it is to make preconceived notions about people by being judgemental in the way that was expressed today. We did not end up vising the garden.

Park in bloom
Jan 2020
This place has very nice paths cross crossing the place. Beautiful scenery. Water features all over. Benches all over the place as well, so you can sit and take it all in. Just stunning to visit on a sunny day.

Great little park for wildlife. Too bad they don't offer more for wildlife photographers - photo blind, bird feeders.
Mar 2020
First off, this site wouldn't allow me to give this area more than a terrible rating - tried several times. As as a visiting non-resident, I really enjoyed this little park. It was very well kept. Other than the wood ducks, their really wasn't much to offer for wildlife photographers, though. A simple photo blind in front of a feeder station would lure in many species to the camera. And, it would be best to get input on it's layout from an actal photographer

Always Delightful!
Feb 2020
No matter the season this garden is one of the most beautiful places in Portland. The main season for the rhododendrons is in May but there are different ones that bloom at various times of the year. The huge trees and variety of shrubs and flowers make a visit here at any time of the year an excellent choice.

Beautiful urban oasis

Come here to enjoy nature. The Rhodies are beautiful when in bloom in spring. The pond is full of birds. So relaxing.

Nature's beauty in the heart of town.
Nov 2018
In any season, you'll find a reason to linger here. You can see bald eagles, great blue herons, wood ducks, and a huge variety of overly friendly geese, ducks and squirrels. There are also nutria, beavers and river otters. Each season brings new delights.

Beautiful!
The rhododendrons were not in bloom, but what a great place to walk and see ducks, flowers and more. Right across from Reed College

Mother's Day Special
Apr 2019
The beautiful Rhododendron Gardens were always a special treat for my Mother, usually on Mother's Day.
And now, my son & I go almost each year. He had the intention to purchase a plant or two, as they do have specials at times. The Gardens are beautiful with the colorful blooms. Do take a look, especially May & June as it is in a lovely part of Portland with walking paths & water features to enjoy.

Nice day with family

Beautiful grounds, although the rhododendron had already bloomed. I visited there the end of July. Got to see a nutria for the first time! Saw a lot of ducks and geese. A great place to enjoy nature and the wildlife.
