Absolutely beautiful and a must do and see when in Portland. Great for taking pictures if you love nature photography. the sweet smell in the air of all the roses is awesome. So many different varieties of roses I've never even heard of. Great way to spend a nice afternoon. Go there !!
I still don’t understand why they call it the rose city. Maybe one day scholars will solve that mystery. 5/5 stars. Great place. Great people. Great flowers. Mild weather.
A tourist must see if you are in the area during Spring or Summer. You can roam around the different gardens or opt for a guided tour. It's a beautiful spot. Learn fascinating facts about each rose. There are some beautiful views of the Portland city skyline as well.
The place is really cool and there's different varieties of roses to see, with a lot of facts about them. Just up the hill there's a Japanese botanical garden also, but it does have an admission fee to get into that. Just down the hill is Washington park.
This is definitely a must-see in Portland! I always tell everyone about it! So many good picture opportunities w/the roses and the overlook of downtown Portland with Mt. Hood in the background. Simply amazing!! Also stairs, archways, and fountains all great for pictures. Portland is the city of roses so it only makes sense to visit the Rose Gardens when here!
