One of the best Japanese gardens in the US
Nov 2021 • Family
The gardens were absolutely beautiful. I’ve been to Numerous other Japanese gardens around North America and this one is by far one of the best. If you plan on visiting Portland, this is a must see in my opinion.

Little something for everyone !

Didn’t have a lot of time but at least got to see it!! Luckily it’s not that big but if had more time would have sat and taken in all the beauty. The fish ponds were my favorite. It’s a bit pricey but am sure that’s for all the maintenance it needs. Very very beautiful.

An expensive walk.
Nov 2021 • Friends
A very nice walk. Nicely landscaped. $35 seems expensive for a couple to take a 45 minute stroll. Many cities have similar Japanese gardens in their parks that are free. Save your money.

Autumn Beauty
Oct 2021
Even though I visited the Portland Japanese Garden on a dreary autumn day, it was beautiful. The leaves were a variety of golds, oranges and reds. The paths are thoughtfully laid out and you can see various Japanese garden styles. If you want, you can do a 1 hour stroll or you could stretch it out and relax along the way for a few hours.

Great place to visit
Nov 2021 • Family
Great place. Lots to see. Look at the pictures everyone posts and figure when the best time to go is. I think maybe in the spring and the fall. When I went, it was summer and winter. Everything is just bare or green, no colors. But still a nice place to visit.

Great!
Oct 2021
There are a lot of relaxing spots and activities to do. You can do jogging, running, biking, set up a picnic, or just sit on the grass while enjoying the view. The plants and flowers are well-maintained. Areas are clean. There are several uphill walks so make sure to wear your most comfortable shoes. We would come back here to spend more time. Must-visit!

Tranquil Gardens well worth a visit. Book tickets in advance
Oct 2021
Well worth visiting and spending time walking through their tranquil gardens. If you want to visit their tea room you must book when you arrive. Lovely place to spend 2 hours

Beautifully Zen....
Oct 2021
The best part of my visit to Portland was the visit to this garden. I lucked out without any reservations. I was there on a cold, gloom Thursday morning. Things were very busy by sunny noon just as I left. Recommend reservations for entry, tour and tea room. Susan H. was a great guide
