This would have been a much prettier sight if it had not been pouring rain but still thought the Rose Garden was a great place to see in Portland.

There have to be over 5,000 roses in this remarkable area of Washington Park just above downtown. Every year there is a competition of rose varieties and there are ratings in many different categories in early summer. The views from the Rose Garden look out east over downtown, the Willamette Rive on to snowy Mount Hood at 11,245 feet just 40 miles away. There are many signs and information about the roses, and they are meticulously maintained for bloom over many months. This is a must-see attraction in this "Rose City."

There were plenty of roses to see even at the end of October. It is free and beautiful. Nice view of the downtown skyline.

Parking can sometimes be a bit tricky, but I love taking my dog to the rose gardens to just walk around. He gets to socialize with other dogs, and I get to stop and smell the roses. It's a beautiful, relaxing spot.

A must see when visiting Portland. A breathtaking view of the whole city. I am a native of Portland and never get tired of the gardens. When ever I have friends visiting this is one of the places I always bring them.
