It is very unfortunate the experience I had today at this beautiful place. My complaint is about the hired staff. We were a group of 3 mom's and our children looking forward to today's visit. The staff at the Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden clearly need training on how to speak to the public. The young man, who made nasty assumptions about us 3 mom's visiting with our children were unacceptable. The way in which he spoke to us about our children was done in the most rude way I have ever experienced.

This place has very nice paths cross crossing the place. Beautiful scenery. Water features all over. Benches all over the place as well, so you can sit and take it all in. Just stunning to visit on a sunny day.

And, it would be best to get input on it's layout from an actal photographer…

No matter the season this garden is one of the most beautiful places in Portland. The main season for the rhododendrons is in May but there are different ones that bloom at various times of the year. The huge trees and variety of shrubs and flowers make a visit here at any time of the year an excellent choice.…

Come here to enjoy nature. The Rhodies are beautiful when in bloom in spring. The pond is full of birds. So relaxing.
