This garden is so diverse with lots of birds and wildlife. Nice simple trails with lots of water views. Plenty of waterfalls and small streams to view or larger wide lakes. So peaceful.

I look forward to going every year when the rhododendrons and magnolias start blooming. A nice walking path surrounds the property and makes a wonderful romantic stroll over the water as wildlife cavorts under your feet.

Sure, there are lots of more exciting places to visit in Portland. This is a very peaceful place with lots of ducks and squirrels, with well-maintained gardens. There are several lagoons making for a nice nature walk.

The garden is large and is beautiful, even when the rhododendrons are not in bloom. Plan for a lot of walking and to potentially get a bit lost. It was a great, low-key experience.

What a beautiful garden for only $5.00 per person, and enough trails, bridges and benches to allow you to relax all afternoon. It was a hot day when we went, but there were plenty of shaded areas and even with quite a few visitors, it...More

While in town for only a short while, we made time for a visit. We enjoyed an early morning stroll through Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden in southeastern Portland, OR. Well worth a visit!

There is also no admission charged prior to 10AM, if you can get them there early enough, or after 6PM. The park itself is open dawn to dusk. So you still have an opportunity on Fridays.
