  • Really enjoyed walking around in the park. There are several places to explore from the zoo to the Japanese gardens. It is hard to believe you are in the city. A regular shuttle runs through the park ...  more »
  • End of June roses probably past their best but still worth visiting. Traffic congestion at this part very bad. We did not know about the other larger parking lots at Washington Park because we just pu...  more »

  • Among the first of Portland’s many great parks, Washington Park is truly one of the greatest. The International test gardens are truly world-class in the collection of roses. Check out the charming Shakespeare garden in the southeast corner of the park near downtown. A delightful amphitheater area is used in summer for plays, operas, symphonic performances, etc. Tennis courts are popular in summer, and the park enjoys spectacular views of downtown and even of Mount Hood on clear days. It’s a truly huge area, as well, stretching from downtown all the way to the Oregon Zoo. Hikes of various degrees of difficulty can allow you to wander for hours through deep woods or open meadows; an archery range is one treasure among many in this magical place. Explore!
  • A very cool Park that includes the Rose Garden, the Japanese garden, the Portland Zoo, and the Hoyt Arboretum. It would take more than just one day to explore all of Washington Park, I would argue it would take you at least a week. There's always fun events going on all the time especially in the warmer months during spring summer and fall. The zoo often hosts different concerts and other events. The Japanese garden always has a lot going on, and the Arboretum is always a lot of fun to hike around. Lots to see and lots to do, endless amounts list of fun in Washington Park.
  • Washington park is full of interesting and beautiful places to explore. From trees once considered extinct to the latest in rose garden discoveries. Japanese garden that is world class to an ever growing zoo. Even a free archery range. .
  • A patch of green within a city, that's always nice! (If you like green and walking). The fact that within this park you can visit the Japanese Garden, and the Rose Test garden. Note that, March is not the best time to visit the Rose Garden because the flowers are not out yet (just a few flowers in trees here and there).
  • Some very beautiful sights! Loved the Japanese garden. I would recommend coming in the summer though so you can see the flowers while they're bloomed and whatnot.
