Laurelhurst Park is a city park in the neighborhood of Laurelhurst in Portland, Oregon. The 26.81-acre (10.85 ha) park was acquired in 1909 from the estate of former Portland mayor William S. Ladd. The City of Portland purchased the land in 1911, and the following year park superintendent Emanuel Mische designed the park in accordance with the Olmsted Plan.Plan your visit to Laurelhurst Park and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Portland trip planner.

The park costs the city approximately $274,000 per year to maintain.

Amazing place for the whole family to enjoy. By far a great tourist spot and the nature walks are endless! This park offers a lot to do & also a whole lot of beautiful nature scenery around you. Would recommend for anyone looking to find somewhere new to explore or a great place to relax! :)
Gorgeous park. Peaceful and serene space. Man made lake meanders through one side of the park. Trees are awesome. Lots of winding paths a dream for dog walkers.
Amazing park! The off leash dog area is parr to none. The openness and size alone just for the off leash dog area should be a standard for all dog parks. Dogs should feel like they are in a park not in a cage stuck with other dogs. Me and my dog love going here.
This is a beautiful park. The landscaping is perfectly natural, even though the pond is not. They've died the water so that it's a pretty emerald green, but natural? Certainly not! The bathrooms needed attention, but at least they flushed.
It was such a beautiful park. It's so big, and has plenty of trees for shade, but also a lot of open fields to play soccer or football or Frisbee. There is a few hills that is challenging for someone in a wheelchair, like me, but it was manageable. Amazing place to take the kids.
