Luckily Washington Park has a stop along the light rail because we didn't have a car. The stop lets you out right by the zoo. There are a few sites to see around the zoo but you can take the bus to go to other parts of the park. The shuttle bus wasn't running on weekdays during our visit but we were able to take the 63 city bus which took us near the rose garden/Japanese tea garden area where we got off and walked around.

Beautiful park. If we had more time and/or access to a car we could have seen more. We'll probably have to come back on another visit. Great way to experience the natural beauty of Portland.

a beautiful and peaceful refuge in side the city. The rose garden is exceptionally beautiful in the spring but the park is a lovely place to enjoy year round.

Washington park is a favorite and regular spot to visit on my trips to Portland. I love that it is easily accessible from downtown. The last trip we just took the bus up to the park and walked in through a path that led us to the rose garden. The view from the this garden is so amazing. Beautiful variety of roses and plenty of spots to just sit and take in the scenery. There is a small gift shop and public restrooms which were pretty clean near the shuttle drop off area. A short walk up will take you to the Japanese gardens which is definite must see visit if you have time. The gardens are well cared for & so peaceful. It can get a bit crowded at the ticket booth so you may want to go early. Parking was very limited with several cars already double parked. There is a free shuttle as parking looks to be pretty limited for this popular spot.

I had been to the Rose Garden before, not realizing that it was within Washington Park! I went back this visit and took my daughters and grandkids. It was a bit chilly that day but we still enjoyed wandering through the rose garden and visiting the Holocaust Memorial. I envy folks that get to visit on a regular basis...what a great place! Next time, during better weather, I'd like to spend the day and see more!

Washington Park is a true gem of Portland, Oregon. It is a park that is well cared for and genuinely natural in it's setting. One of it's treasures is the Rose Gardens. Some of the most beautiful roses appear every year, so please don't miss the beauty when they are blooming.
