Three of us went for a late afternoon walk at Laurelhurst Park and it was filled with people of all ages. There was a free production of Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream and nearby a silent disco where we paid $5.00 per earphones and listened to disco music and danced with many others in this beautiful park. What a bonus to... More

We needed a stop for the dogs before hitting the road. We had gotten sandwiches at Laurelhurst Market (YUM!) and found a lovely area in the park close by. Lo and behold, it was the dog area for the park with big picnic tables available and many friendly dogs. We could let ours off leash while we enjoyed our lunch.

I had never been to Laurelhurst Park until a year ago and was not disappointed. What a beautiful place to stop for a picnic, hike, or just sit and read a book. Landscape is gorgeous.

Laurelhurst park is a great little gem in the middle of the city of Portland. The pond in the park is a nice place to sit and watch the ducks and turtles and the path around the park is a good walk. Just watch out for homeless people and drug users lurking about.

I grew up near Laurelhurst and things have not changed. It is a lovely park that has a large pond in the middle. There are tennis courts and fields and places to picnic. Great place to spend the day. My niece had her wedding in the club house adjacent to the park. Even walking around and looking at the houses... More

We are visitors to Portland often and a walk in the park is always on our list. It has a variety of shade trees for those hot days.

If you stay in the Hawthorne/Belmont/Laurelhurst area be sure to take a walk or two through Laurelhurst Park. The trees are absolutely amazing and the park is very relaxing and serene.
