Every time I travel to Portland, Oregon I visit this beautiful place. I remember one particulat rainy day, when I had the whole place for myself, something that made me feel like I was really at piece with myself and the world.
Each garden (there are 5 of them, from the natural and almost wild to the very stylized and Zen) will offer you something very special. Take the time to sit in a bench or alcove, or stand on one of the bridges and absorb the ambience and feel your edginness or stress melt away.
Spring, summer, fall and winter will decorate this magical place with a wideranging pallette of colours, textures, sounds and aromas.
Don't hesitate to visit.
