We loved our visit here and it should be on the top of your list if you’re visiting Portland! We could have wandered for several hours. The staff provided a scavenger hunt paper for the kids that they *loved*. We really enjoyed our time here. Highly recommended!

So many colors, wonderful ponds, koi, and maples. Love the experience of being transported to Japan within a beautiful park in the U.S.!
