“So many roses”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2014

This beautiful place is both a gardener's and photographer's dream. Just couldn't pick a favorite rose. The elevated view of the city is a bonus. Not to miss while you are in Portland.

“Really beautiful park, A+”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2014

This is a really beautiful old park, it's actually Portland's very first rose garden and is 100+ years old. A couple of years ago they had their anniversary and planted thousands of more rose plants. While we were there, there were weddings going on, numerous Quinceañeras with all of the Latin families, and tons of other people just strolling through the park looking at all of the beautiful flowers. If you are driving north or south on I-5, it is a must see and is very convenient off of the highway and Rosa Parks Way. There are a couple of great places to just sit and have a picnic, play some ball in the park, or just take lots of photos. Lots to see and do here and it is a little jewel in the city. Go and check it out, but remember to bring your camera. Oh, it's FREE!

“Beautiful Rose Garden”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2014

This is not as big as the International Rose Test garden but equally as beautiful. The roses here are amazing. This is a great place to walk around. We drove here and were able to find free street parking without a problem on a weekday. Go here and enjoy!
