The garden's setting provides a setting for contemplation. We especially enjoyed wandering around the spiral-shaped walkway and inclusion of local newsy bits to its lists of local vets lost or died in the war.

Moving somber memorial that is well thought out with a circular pathway leading to the memorial. An easy way from any of the zoo parking lots.

This is a wonderful tribute to the brave Americans that served and died in Vietnam who were from Oregon. It's a beautiful setting and the memorial is informative and very well done.

Yes . You would take the Max line and get off at Washington Park , it's extremely close to the downtown area so it would take you no time at all to get there
