Portland Japanese Garden, Portland Reviews - Write a Review
Beautiful at any time of year. I've never been here in the fall before but went again today and it was a perfect crisp fall day to go walking around in the garden. The special exhibits are always a treat and a look into another culture. The entrance to the park has recently been renovated so go check it out! $14.95 for adults. $1.60 an hour for parking or $4 for all day. A lot of people come to this area so parking can be tight. Hours change during the fall and winter seasons so check ahead for current hours! Most of the park is wheelchair accessible with the exception of a couple of paths.
They've made a grand new addition to a wonderful garden set in the west hills. This is a peaceful place. Walk up the canyon from the new entrance pavilion-note that there is a steady uphill grade and steps toward the top. Or, if you prefer, take the shuttle for accessibility. It's more than worth parking issues and traffic. Get there early. Better yet, take the TriMet and the park shuttle.
Very beautiful. I went mid day and it was very pretty and we'll maintained but the downside to it being such a tourist attraction is that it's quite busy. We were being ushered along by the current of people the entire time so stopping and taking in the view wasn't really an option. And for those hoping to escape into some kind of huge forest of maple trees with beautiful bridges and waterfalls, just keep in mind that everything you see in pictures is about shoulder height and very cramped, this is a garden, not a forest. Very beautiful but smaller than it looks
The garden is lovely and serene but it should be made clear that it is not very child friendly. We witnessed a family being chastised for eating a snack, outside the confines of the garden, at the direction of another employee. It was nothing drippy or messy, but the staff was concerned about crumbs attracting undesirable bugs. If their protocol is that rigid, I believe they should more clearly state that and not allow children under 10 (or so). It would make life easier for guests and employees alike.
One of my favorite places in the Portland area. Great place to take your time and quietly laze your way through the enriching views and tranquility of the gardens. If you can time it right, don't miss out on an opportunity for a guided tour with one of the volunteers.
