    Must see
    Honestly I think I enjoyed seeing all the beautiful flowers rather than the animals though the animal exhibits were great. We had a great time at this zoo though. Yes you do have to walk a lot but bring water and bring snacks. We visited during Portland's heat wave.

    Great Park!
    I absolutely loved my morning spent here. It’s walkable from the centre of Portland and is beautifully laid out, and very well sign posted. The Rose Garden is just stunning; the Holocaust Memorial is so very moving and the Sacajawea Statue is beautiful. Well worth a visit.

    Wonderful on a nice day
    If you visit Portland be sure to visit the park. We took the tram from the center and when we came up from the station there is a free shuttle that takes you all around the park so you can hop-on-hop-off wherever you want. As the park is pretty big this is a nice option. It’s also great just to walk if you are in shape. We walked back down to town which was fine. The rose garden is fantastic (and free), the different monuments are worth a look. We did not enter the Japanese garden (long queue and high price).

    Great Place to Spend a Day
    One of the Portland highlights - make sure to visit the Rose Garden, the Japanese Garden, and the Hoyt Arboretum. Highly recommended. Given the cost of the parking within Washington Park, I suggest either taking mass transit or parking outside of the park and walking inside.

    Lovely Park
    Had a lovely walk through Washington Park. It is quite a steep walk but well worth the exercise. Highlights include the Holocaust memorial which is extremely tasteful, the Japanese Gardens and the squirrels. Lots of paved walkways and a good spot for e-scooters.

This is a huge park overlooking the city of Portland. Roses are the main feature of this beautiful park. There is a fee for parking and signs warning of car break-ins. While there, we met a family who had all their luggage stolen. Remember to not leave anything visible inside of your car.

This is a huge park located in Portland. Accordingly, a lot of local people come here for a walk and exercise. Parking is metered but there are plenty of spaces. Bring your own water if you plan to walk a lot.

This is an amazing park with many different trails to choose from. We opted to Uber here as we had heard that parking was an issue. The information center staff were very helpful and friendly. Each trail has decent markings and the map we got from the info center was also helpful. A gem in the city for sure!

Beautiful gardens, well worth the time and having the timed ticket for the Japanese Garden allowed for space to see and enjoy the gardens.

We only visited the Rose Garden, as we came on a rainy day and the rain was soon to set in. The rose garden was absolutely beautiful! There was also a small gift shop with rose-themed drinks/snacks and memorabilia.

The rose garden provided lots of walking around, as the flowers were endless. We’re disappointed we didn’t get to see more of the park before the rain, but the rose garden alone with worth the visit.
