My husband and I visited the rose garden and the Japanese garden while we were here. It is easy to get here on the MAX and there is a free shuttle that loops round the park. We had lunch at the zoo cafe without buying...More

wASHINGTON PARK overlooks the city of Portland so you can hike up and get a good view or just surrender to the pleasant trail in the woods. The Park contains other worthwhile places to visit such as the Zoo, Rose Garden, Japanese Garden, and Veterans...More

For Washington Park you have to take your car, coming out of town. Or better, take the light rail. It brings you in minutes to a station under the park from where an elevator 'beams you up'. The park with the rosegardens and arboretum, is...More

I think the park is beautiful and has so much to offer. It's a place to get away from the noise of the city where you can stop and smell the roses, check out the Japanese garden or visit the zoo. There's something for everyone.

We especially enjoyed the International Rose Garden and the Vietnam Memorial. Loved the piney smell of the park and the giant evergreen trees.

This is more than a city park, but a real forest. The hilly terrain offers challenging trails. The Max light rail train takes you to the heart of the park. The elevator from the underground station delivers you the entrance of the zoo. The nearby...More

Washington Park is a beautiful area of the city. A nice walk and sights of lush green space just high enough to catch a pretty view of the downtown. We ubered up and walked back down to Powell's-not a back walk at all.

My kids and I will be in Portland for just an afternoon and evening, and I had the Japanese Garden on our agenda. Then found out it's actually located in Washington Park where several other places to see are located, too, like the children's museum, zoo, etc. Is everything located so far apart that we'd need to drive and park at the different locations, or do we park in one location and just walk to the locations we want to go?

Hi there. The park is huge and the Zoo is on the opposite end from the Gardens. You could walk it if you felt spry, but I would suggest driving since you have your children with you. They have several places to park in and... More

I agree with Dan D. - it depends on your preferences. We enjoy staying in NW Portland in the Pearl District, because of the restaurants and accessibility to Washington Park. It's all so close you can hike then walk to... More
HI, is there any food available in the park? If so, where? Also, which areas such as the Rose Garden and Japanese require tickets/payment? Or is there an admission just to get into the park. I'm confused; not finding good information on the website. Thanks so much to anyone who can help.

I didn't pay anything but we just walked around. There are several indoor spots that may have food but I didn't go into them I'm sorry I couldn't be more help.
