I love the spring perennials. The fern wall by the pond is beautiful. The collection of primroses is nice, and the Rhodies bloom for months. There is color in the park most of the year. Special is the Davidia or dove tree by the restrooms and wedding lawn that blooms flowers that look like hankies in May/June. What a treat!

If you can hit the right time when the rhodies bloom, this place is great. It makes for nice relaxing walks and has good areas to sit.

The rhodies are at peak in May/June and this is the best place to see over 400 varieties. The park is still a good bet the rest of the year for the walk, the ponds, streams and wildlife.

Strolling beside the lake, ponds, and waterfall when the azaleas and rhododendrons are out is very peaceful. It's quite near Reed College, so can be combined with a walk in the beautiful grounds there.

This a beautiful place any time but our particular favorite time of year is when they host the martinmas lantern walk...an amazing venue for this event. Thanks!
