“Glorious”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

The Rose Garden is across from the Japanese Tea Garden in Woodland Park. The variety of colors and the types of petals are amazing. I was disappointed that it wasn't more fragrant. There is also an nice view of the city from here. The garden is accessible by bus.

“The No 1 attraction in Portland”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

Acres of Roses, roses, and more roses all planted in rows for impact of color. Take a picnic or a snack and enjoy the view of Mt. Hood and downtown Portland too,

“Unbelievable!”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

Even if the thought of looking at thousands of roses doesn't get you excited, you MUST visit the Rose Garden. It is breathtaking, peaceful, and smells amazing!! I visited in early October and there were still plenty of flowers in bloom. I could have spent hours walking around checking out the different roses. One of my favorite stops in Portland.

“Stunning flowers”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

If you can find a place to park, the Rose Garden is a must for any visitor to Portland during the rose blooming months. There is no admission cost. Plan a picnic and enjoy the sights and smells.

“Nice way to spend an afternoon”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

Beautiful roses, all different kinds of roses. Different colors and different smells. They also had a free concert that we sat in the grass and listened to between rose viewing.
