The Rose Garden is always such a beautiful place (even when not in bloom). The location on the hill gives a great view of the city and Mt. Hood. We go to see the roses, we go for photo shoots, we go for live performances...More
Coming here when the roses are in bloom is always a happy day! Located in the SW area known as Washington Park, you can visit here and take a shuttle to stop at other attractions. The IRTG is vivacious and full of life, for free!...More
I came to the rose garden, I saw -- only a few blooms. The garden is clearly amazing but word to the wise: don't visit in late November! I was told later by my Uber driver to visit in May, June, July, August, September --...More
A wonderful display of a variety of forms, shapes and colours.
Easy to navigate. Many flowers still in full bloom.
Took approximately 90 minutes to walk through and review.
Well set up, plenty of instruction and materials.
Enjoyed this visit to famous Rose Gardens
The International Rose Test Garden in Portland is a beautiful place to visit, particularly when the roses are in full bloom. I went to the gardens to escape from the business of the city for a while and this was definitely the tranquil place that...More
We were there last September and lucky for us it was the season of roses in full bloom so the garden were colourful and pretty. We can even smell the roses the moment we entered the garden and it was really lovely. There were a...More
Thousands of rose bushes of every conceivable type and color. Although the garden is somewhat divided into sections, it's pretty much just a big open area with row after row of roses. it's definitely worth a stop if you are visiting Portland during season, but...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!
