I was surprised how much was in bloom in late september, excellent views of the city and a wonderful escape from the city.

Roses in all colors, shapes and aromas.There is also lovely gift shop with some unusual items, mostly made from roses or about roses.
If you are visiting Portland, then you must visit Mt Washington Park and all of the surrounding gardens. This one is free so definitely stop by.
This stop is really unbelievably beautiful. The variety, the fragrance, the colors, the beautiful peaceful setting are not something to be missed while visiting Portland
Go early in the day if possible, while the dew is still on the blooms. Also, parking is a lot easier just outside the garden parking area. A lot of room along the streets.
