A wonderful place to spend an afternoon. The roses are magnificent and the park is well maintained. It’s worth repeated return visits.

The roses were in bloom. The colors and fragrances were amazing. It was a beautiful day with light puffy clouds and uncrowded paths.

Beautiful setting and you could just drive through if you don't want to or can't walk. It's worth the trip.

This Rose Garden is the real star of Peninsula Park. Every summer and beginning of fall the rose garden is at its height of beauty. You will see kids running around, dogs playing in the rows of flowers and photographers snapping pictures for engagement photos....More

The hop on and hop off bus left us off right at the rose gardens. So many roses in bloom and colors I didn't even know about. Easy to walk around with restrooms and venders along side gardens. Nice views of Mt. Hood.

Visiting here after moving away from Portland about 3 years ago...it is always worth a visit to the Rose Gardens in the summer. They are gorgeous! Be prepared for parking issues, if you can take the shuttle in, do that.

Roses of all colors and types. Wonderful walking paths and plenty of parking. A photographers wonderland. Statues pop up in hidden places and alongside benches. Refreshments available. Need GPS, difficult to find.

Soon there will be rhododendrons, but the lovely roses should be at their best in May, June, and July depending on how hot summer will be. I was there in Sept and there were still pretty roses, but I think June is best to... More
