The odor is incredible! You can walk and admire the flowers for hours. There is a bus stop at the entrance and you can also... More

The roses are growing and the trees blooming. The fountain is relaxing and stimulating at the same time. Great place to eat a picnic, play with your dog or write in your journal. Soak in history and the beauty of nature. Worth the trip to visit this quiet and lovely park in the city. Close to some great restaurants and... More

There is parking, and full park and the stunningly beautiful displays of arranged rose bushes and other plants and trees. Well worth a visit.

If you are not in shape, recommend taking public transportation. I hiked from the Convention Center to the Rose Garden on a lovely day. Such beautiful roses and the view of Mt. Hood. Remarkable!

This rose garden is the original rose test garden in Portland, before the Rose garden current location in Washington Park. Although the current location can't be beat for beauty in a large, scenic park (many Portland postcard pics taken here). The Peninsula Park location still retains the old neighborhood feel. Yes, the park is viewed by many to be unsafe... More

If you like roses like I do then you will think this place is a chunk of heaven here on earth but you are still in Portland.

Lovely rose garden in a very accessible and easy to find place. This was the first of the rose gardens in Portland and many would argue that it's still the best. Great fountain in the middle that kids love to stick their toes into. Great place to visit if you love gardens and flowers.

This park area is great to stroll around and literally take time to "smell the roses". It's up on a hill just outside of the city, so on a clear day, the views are great. The Japanese Gardens are just across the street - also a great stop when in the area!!
