Lovely green plush gardens. Nice quiet, easy walking. Parking can be tricky...go early.
Many Japanese native plants.

A peaceful oasis in Portland. Although it is winter the scenery in the gardens and the sights are beautiful. Well worth the trip.

These gardens are like a scene out of a Japanese documentary. And the crowning glory is the breathtaking view of Mount hood.

I've only been a couple times, but it is one of those places I've considered buying a membership so I can see it in all the different shades of the year. Well designed and maintained, supposed to be one of the best in the country. Its a very nice oasis very near the city.

A lovely and authentic Japanese garden. The koi are beautiful and will keep you in rapt attention if you let them. There has been lots of rigorous pruning. to turn this garden into a work of art. If can accept this, you will be delighted. If you are into unimpeded nature then this is not the place for you.
