We stopped for an afternoon in the summer. It was a gorgeous day and the roses were even better! Definitely add it to your list!

On a clear day one can see mt hood. On a not so clear day one can look at the flowers. Its walking distance from everything in the city.

I was most excited to see the beautiful rose garden I’ve heard so many great things about. We were able to park quickly but with the winter we had no roses we’re bloomed. Such a disappointment and waste of paying for parking

I’ve visited this simply amazing garden several times over the years and I can’t think of a more wonderful display of roses anywhere. In peak bloom it’s hilarious to watch the crowds falling all over themselves to try to capture the glorious explosive color. Every...More

I’m assuming this rose Park is stunning when in bloom, however it was a bust for us. Mostly mud and thorns.

These summer concerts are amazing if you have the spare time to attend in this beautiful venue! Blues, Bluegrass, Jazz, Orchestra, Swing, Big Band, and other Krooner era compositions work best for this setting...
