“Must See”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

One of Portland's major attractions. Thousands of rose bushes all meticulously maintained. The cooler summer here keeps the roses in bloom for months. It's even nice in winter

“Beautiful in Summer”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2012

The flowers are beautiful in summer and worth a look. Not worth going to in winter but spring and summer is a good time to visit.

“beautiful”

Loved it but a little hard to get to and even harder to park. But worth it for the brilliant colors and varieties.
