We went to Washington Park to the rose gardens. They were absolutely loved it! The Japanese Gardens were lovely. We also drove to the Pittock Mansion. It a wonderful place to walk or jog.

We didn't know what to expect, but this park has several sights worth seeing - the Rose garden, the Japanese garden, the Holocaust Memeorial, the zoo, hiking trails. It has a free shuttle that takes you around the park and it's in a beautiful setting.
