Parking was $10 I believe and a small parking lot. Bought tickets and jumped on the shuttle to take us to the top. You can also walk but it will take about 5 minutes. Spent about an hour walking around taking pictures and enjoying the beauty. There was a restroom about half way through.

The garden is set high above the city and is easy to navigate. There is a shuttle available for persons who have difficulty walking the steep trail to the garden entrance. While the garden is very traditional, the designers have preserved many of the trees natural to the Portland area. The garden has many lovely paths and various areas. Even with many people it is a calm and serene spot.

If there is one thing I've noticed when visiting Japanese gardens around the world, it is that many do it poorly.

This garden has legitimately been the closest to the real thing that I have come across since going to Japan. Would recommend it.

The cafe inside the grounds was delicious and staff were helpful.

The Japanese Garden is a Portland landmark for a reason. Having lived in Portland for years, this is a place I try to visit at least a couple times a year.

Any time is a good time to visit. The new construction is all done and there is now a great little restaurant and gift shop along with the real attraction - the beautiful gardens.

Worth your time - it’s a beautiful place.

Love this place, it's a great place to connect with nature. Stress relieving and all in all, just a gorgeous place to soak up some sunshine and breath in the fresh air!
