...and by getting the free shuttle around the park, especially between the zoo and the Japanese Gardens, you get the chance to see some stunning real estate. Jaw-dropping houses and gardens....

If you visit before June you can park for the day for $6.40. There is a free shuttle that goes around the park every 15 minutes. There are several trails to walk throughout the park as well as a zoo, rose garden, Japanese garden, children's museum, etc. you could spend the day easily here at the park.

Yes indeed, walking through some parts of this park feels more like walking in a pine forest, rather than in a park. Though it is beautifully groomed and has some huge trees. I

We took a taxi up the hill to Washington Park and went to the Rose Garden. The roses were not in bloom yet, but it was a beautiful setting. We sat and looked out at Mount Hood. It was a very relaxing couple of hours. There is currently a lot of construction going on in the Rose Garden to rebuild... More

We started our tour of the gardens at the bottom and made our way to the top up a well defined path. A fair climb but it's worth it, we walked down by a different path, you could taxi etc. to the top and just wander down. The trees were magnificent and spring had truly arrived. Highlight included the experimental... More

We waked through Washington Park to get to the Rose Garden and Japanese Gardens. As we got off the bus and started walking up to sidewalk and then into the park the noise of the city was being drowned out by girls. The air was heavy that morning but it made for a nice change of pace from the city.... More

There is more to this park than you realize at first glance. There is more than one play space and the Rose Gardens are pretty much integral to it as well. Excellent slice of Portland.
