When we were dating, my now-husband used to live in the area and we would go walk around this park all of the time. It's such a sweet little gem that packs a lot of scenic punch for such a small city neighborhood part!

A lovely block or two in the city, with a massive and colorful rose garden, a brick or stone gazebo, and a big fountain, too. A peaceful spot. I think there’s a playground off to the side, too.

This is a view of the city not to be missed. No need for a guide, just park the car and venture up and around. This is a great place to have brought a camera and a small picnic or a blanket and book.

We visited the Rose Garden just one day after the annual Rose Festival. The Docent gave a very informative tour and answered many questions. What a lovely way to spend an afternoon!

This is one of the must stop spots in Portland, OR. Great view and beautiful gardens. Even when the roses are not in full bloom it is lovely.

Soon there will be rhododendrons, but the lovely roses should be at their best in May, June, and July depending on how hot summer will be. I was there in Sept and there were still pretty roses, but I think June is best to... More
