A lovely place to spend the afternoon wandering through endless rows of gorgeous roses. The garden is located on a hill just below the sublime Japanese Garden. The roses are displayed in sections with well-marked signage describing the names of the flowers. Multiple intersecting pathways...More
We visited Portland in late March and visited this site after seeing the wonderful Japanese Garden across the street. Unfortunately, the roses were not yet in bloom, so all we saw were countless beds of thorns.
This seems to be well laid out and they...More
It is beautiful !!!, the roses and the city view cannot be better. It is relaxing and great for pictures. Be aware of parking difficulties but it is worthy. You should not come in late fall or winter, roses are cut.
The Portland Rose Garden is one of the best in the Northwest. The garden is laid out in an easy to meander plan, and I love that every rose in the garden is labeled. The hillside location is one of the most beautiful spots in...More
Okay. Imagine you are in heaven and you smell something so sweet and beautiful. Well, guess what?? The Rose Garden is that place!!! The sweet smelling roses are so beautiful and bring everyone closer together!!! My family and I spent one day together there and...More
To be 100% honest it’s also my on,y rose garden. But I imagine if I knew anything about roses ..besides that they smell nice..this would still be my favorite
I went because it’s practically in downtown..it’s that easy to reach..and roses are the symbol of...More
We walked a small portion of this area after visiting the Japanese Gardens across the way. There are too many varieties of roses to name. There is a very helpful map to guide you through the gardens; it also allows you to go to view...More
This garden is free and has the biggest collection of roses I've seen. They have free tours with a docent on certain days (information can be obtained in the souvenir shop of this garden).
Information sheets describe how new types of roses are bred. Beautiful...More

Unfortunately most of the roses will no longer be in bloom. However it is still a beautiful garden with a smaller part of the garden called the Shakespeare Garden that has other kinds of plants and flowers that may still be in bloom. There is also a lovely view of part of downtown Portland plus a walk of metal plates in the ground for each Portland Rose Festival Queen (all seniors in high school going on to college when they were crowned) for the last 100 - 115 years. This gorgeous 5-10 acre Portland Washington Park Rose Test Garden is located in the forested area of The West Hills with a beautiful natural Japanese Garden ($9-$11) just up from the Rose Garden on the other side of the tennis courts. There is also a nice Rose Gift Shop worth seeing at the Rose Garden. About a mile up a beautiful forest walk or drive from the Rose a garden is the very nice Portland Zoo ($11 - $15). It may be overcast and rainy in a November, but the natural forest there with all I have mentioned is beautiful any time of year. The Pittock Mansion a mile or two away off Burnside Avenue is well worth a long steep uphill hike or a beautiful drive too. It is about ($10-$15). Spectacular view of Portland from this 100 year old stunning mansion! These are all some of the most beautiful parts of Portland. Portland is the City of Roses and Washington Park is the largest natural forest within the city limits of any city in the USA. Please come to Portland and breathe in the fresh, clean air in Washington Park, enjoy the view, and see how magical a forest within a city can be. You won’t be disappointed!
