"Rose Garden" Washington Park Tip by Gypsystravels

Washington Park, Portland: 29 reviews and 51 photos

  Stopping to smell the roses
by Gypsystravels

Within Washington Park is the Rose Test Garden, the largest in the country. There are over 550 varieties of roses. It's a beautiful place to spend a lazy afternoon just smelling the roses. I absolutely loved the large variety of roses, and even though we were here at the beginning of September there were still many roses still very much in bloom.

There are amazing views of the city skyline, a gaden for that special occassion (we witnessed a wedding here), the Shaksearean Garden and Queen's Walk where each Rose Festival Queen since 1907 has a plaque and a small gift shop.

Entrance is free.
