“Beautiful”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

We were so glad to see that even in October there were so many roses still in bloom. Thousands of beautiful bushes in a myriad of colors. Easy to get to by car and on a clear day the view is beautiful as well. Within walking distance of the Japanese gardens and the Holocaust Memorial.

The garden is a bit of a walk from down town, we stayed near the water front, so make sure you have walking shoes! This garden stimulates your senses. We visited the Chinese Garden and the Holocaust Memorial as well, all three attractions are right near each other.

“Brilliant!!!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

In August, it seemed that all the roses were in perfect bloom. And it is not just for rose fanatics. Beautifully presented and postcard perfect with great views towards Portland but otherwise surrounded by those very tall slender pines. How come I had never heard of this magnificant garden before arriving in America. Definitely not to be missed in season.

A truly great view. Lovely landscape. Good for solos, couples and families. Areas close by for picnics and also a playground for littles.
