Washington Park is huge and covers a lot of space. You have Rose & Japanese Gardens, and Artitorium, walking trails, and so much more. I recently took my visiting family there for the afternoon and it was a great time.

I was amazed by this place even in the cold rain. If you have a chance stop by and take a walk around. Make sure you pay for your parking.

We haven't seen all this amazing park has to offer just yet, however we have had time to see the Portland Japanese gardens and the Rose garden. Parking seems to be the issue here, the traffic was crazy and finding a parking space wasn't easy. Once you get a spot and pay then you can go exploring and it's awesome.... More

There is so much to do in this amazing park! We spent a couple hours here. Even just cutting through here for a nice drive is worth it! Huge trees, extensive trails, and even a zoo! This is a do not miss, as there is something for everyone.

It only takes you 15 mins to be here from downtown Portland by car. You can release your stress in this nice natural forest from the work in very short distance.

Really nice garden and beautifully arranged/maintained. WIll be even better when they finish the extensive renovations they're doing now (Nov.2016). It's not a large garden - can easily see it all in 20-30 minutes if in a hurry.

Do be patient and aware in finding a place to park, and do not be surprised if you end up a fair distance from certain attractions; but, be assured that on a nice day in Portland, hours upon hours can be easily enjoyed at Washington Park and the surrounding area. My actual visit was in the Autumn, and prior to... More

The Test Garden was packed so we kept driving through the park and took a saunter in the Arboretum. There were so many beautiful colors as the leaves were changing and the hike could be done in dress boots (no mud boots/hiking shoes required).

This large urban park is just what is needed when the going gets tough. It is beautifully organized, and has many options.
