Roses of all kinds

Even though it was in October the rose garden was beautiful. Can only image what it was like in mid season. It’s Free and has a shuttle that runs every 20 minutes.

Fabulous at every season
Nov 2021
Acres of roses with a breathtaking view over the city of Portland, this oasis of color and fragrance is the pinnacle of must-visit sites in the city. From April to October roses bloom in profusion, but even in off-months the paths, occasional blooms, proximiity to downtown and wilds of Forest Park trails makes the Rose Test Garden the true heart of Portland, the Rose City. It's free. There's good bus access, train and free shuttle, and you can even walk (uphill) to here from downtown in 30 minutes.

So many roses, so little time

So many roses, varieties and colors. Rows upon rows of them. Tier after tier of them. All neatly kept and beautiful. A must see if you like roses.

Truly Magnificent!
Oct 2021
This is easy. We love Japanese gardens. Several years ago we were in Japan and visited many exquisitely beautiful gardens. This is the best Japanese garden we've ever seen outside of Japan.

We visited on Oct. 14, on a drizzly day, past the prime flower season . . . and it was still magnificently beautiful.

Don't miss it.

Fading roses still worth the visit
Oct 2021
I realize I visited at the tail end of the rose season. However, the shear volume of roses and the beauty of the park make it worth it!

Rose Paradise!

This is a gardeners dream come true! So many beautiful roses all in bloom at the same time and meticulously labeled so you can learn all the names. Highly recommend!

Unbelievable beauty

I love roses and my companion less so, though we were both astounded at the variety of roses through the garden. So lovely!

MUST SEE IN PORTLAND
Sep 2021
A beautiful spot in Portland. The Garden is best done with a docent guide. We never realized how many species of roses here were.
