"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it". Definitely worth a visit... while you're at Washington Park there are plenty of other things to do as well, so this can easily be added to an itinerary while visiting the park.

This isn't the kind of thing you "enjoy"...it's the kind of thing you never forget. Just one more thing that gives Portland it's unique flavor and personality. Portlandia won't be filming here.

Set in a garden, this memorial is effective and meaningful. It is worth a visit. I enjoyed visiting on a day with no rain.
