This is a very nicely laid out garden just for meandering.

We love to visit the Porltand Japanese Garden. We travel to Portland in March to celebrate my husband's birthday and because he lived in Japan for 5 years he loves going to the Garden. It is beautiful and we enjoy wandering around and seeing something new everytime.

Take a couple of hours and a camera and take your time going through this gorgeous garden.

With so many free parks to go and relax in around Portland, the fact that we had to pay to get into this one makes it less appealing to the cheap individual I often am. It was memorable... the koi fish, small trickling waterfalls, and the way Japanese design ingrains itself so seamlessly and inobtrusively with the landscape are lovely... but I had just as much fun and relaxation at the Rose Garden.
I'm glad I went once, but it's unlikely I'll go back.

The garden is so serene and peaceful. One of the best I have ever seen.
