This is one of our favorite spots. The garden is beautifully manicured with hundreds of rhododendron plants of all kinds, with a stream and pond dividing up the land into quiet little pockets of nature. In the spring, the rhododendrons and azaleas are beautiful. But the garden has many other kinds of flowers and plants, which bloom through the year,... More

We enjoyed walking through the Rhododendron Park in Portland. It was a sunny warm fall afternoon and there were only a few other people. It was very peaceful. It was fun to sit quietly and watch the ducks!

We visited in October, so only a few Rhododendrons had blossoms, but this huge park offered so many lovely things to see. We photographed a great blue heron framed by Autumn foliage, and saw a beaver swimming in the lake. What a thrill.

We went in late october, and the weather was atypically nice, the garden is absolutely gorgeous. No fee was applicable because it was off season, but it totally would have been worth the nominal fee to get in. The garden is an easy walk and plenty of pretty plants and wild life to see.

I love the majestic St. John's Bridge across the Willamette River in Portland. It's a breathtaking suspension bridge!

Make sure to see these gardens when the Rhododendrons are in bloom! A great place to walk, sit by the ponds and enjoy a nice evening in the calm of the gardens.
