It's magical. Lush and green. Serenity. I highly recommend a visit to this place, including the Japanese Gardens and Rose Garden. Make sure to wear comfy shoes cause there is a lot of walking.

Washington Park is a GREAT place to visit! Take the Zoo Train from the park to visit the world class Zoo, play tennis, visit the Rose Garden, see the Japanese Garden, have a picnic, etc.

The park includes all of the attractions and has a shuttle so that it's easy to get around. It's also a nice walk in between.

The park is a beautiful respite from the bustle of the city. It's all in the hills, so bring good walking shoes. Make a stop at the Rose Test Gardens and Japanese Gardens that are within the area. Note that there is a small fee to enter the Japanese Garden.

A great park to visit and large so wear good shoes. There is a international rose test garden there that has over 7000 rose plants of 550 varieties. Most of the bushes were in bloom so it had a beautiful aroma. The Oregon Zoo, Children's museum and Japanese Garden are also located in Washington Park. An awesome place to spend... More

There is lots to see and do in this park. I went to the rose garden although this time of year it was not in bloom. But the rose "trees" were in bloom and were so beautiful. Different trees were in bloom as well. They also have a Japanese garden right across from the rose garden.
