This park encompasses the best sites of Portland--the Japanese Garden, Rose Garden, Arboretum and Zoo. We spent most of the day enjoying the sites.

Yes indeed, walking through some parts of this park feels more like walking in a pine forest, rather than in a park. Though it is beautifully groomed and has some huge trees. I

We took a taxi up the hill to Washington Park and went to the Rose Garden. The roses were not in bloom yet, but it was a beautiful setting. We sat and looked out at Mount Hood. It was a very relaxing couple of hours....More

My kids and I will be in Portland for just an afternoon and evening, and I had the Japanese Garden on our agenda. Then found out it's actually located in Washington Park where several other places to see are located, too, like the children's museum, zoo, etc. Is everything located so far apart that we'd need to drive and park at the different locations, or do we park in one location and just walk to the locations we want to go?

I agree with Dan D. - it depends on your preferences. We enjoy staying in NW Portland in the Pearl District, because of the restaurants and accessibility to Washington Park. It's all so close you can hike then walk to... More
HI, is there any food available in the park? If so, where? Also, which areas such as the Rose Garden and Japanese require tickets/payment? Or is there an admission just to get into the park. I'm confused; not finding good information on the website. Thanks so much to anyone who can help.
