“Creative Botanical Garden”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

This is an unusual botanical garden in a very good way. Not only does it encompass beautiful flowers and trees, but it also grows vegetables and herbs that are used in the restaurant on the premises. There is a children's garden, beautiful walking paths, and even a tram that will take you all around the extensive gardens with a driver who will explain about the garden and some of the plants. The whole ambiance is spectacular.

“Limited Menu, but Excellent Food”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Pleasant view over the gardens, but somewhat disappointing that the gardens weren't lit up. We both had the duck, very tender and tasty, and another evening, I had a steak with blue cheese and garlic sauce - delicious - while my wife had a seafood appetizer then a salad. Desserts really good, especially the chocolate one.

“So Beautiful every time we go there”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

The Oregon Garden is always special. Each time it is different because the plants change throughout the year. This time the color was outstanding. Roses, great fall colors and more. We love going there!

“Fall beauty everywhere....”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

We visited the Garden last week, and what a beautiful time of the year to see fall beginning in so many ways. The trees and leaves are showing the fall season in full, spectacular color. Walking paths throughout the Garden are easy to walk on and are clearly marked on the map. Each "special area" is listed and professionally done. There is also a "trolley" to ride on for a 30 minute "tour" of the entire Garden and the driver narrates during the trip.
