International Rose Test Garden - Review
With the fear of decimation, a responsible citizen had foreseen the threat of the European roses being subject to extinction during the bombing of the First World War. This very thought convinced the government ultimately giving birth to the International Rose Test Garden. In this sumptuous garden, you will get a chance to stroll amidst 10,000 blooming flowers belonging to about 500 different species. The park acts like an oasis amidst the bustle of city, thereby rejuvenating you and making you believe in the immortality of beauty.

International Rose Test Garden, Portland Reviews
Very well kept park with great variety of roses. We were there just 30 minutes before sunset and found ample parking, easy access and an easy to navigate presentation of beautiful roses. Good signage leading you to the test garden area of the park. The area was a bit larger than we expected and had more roses than we expected which was great. My only suggestion is that it would have been nice to have all of the bushes better labeled. The signs marking the varieties seemed hit or miss.
This is an amazing place and heaven for photographers. Everyone with any camera in hand becomes a great photographer in this place. We visited during first week of July when it was full bloom. We thought of spending one hour here but we ended up spending almost full day. It has got huge huge variety of roses and I push everyone to visit during full bloom season. I would call the visiting center before planning the visit. Entry is absolutely free!.
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!
This place was beautiful. I came in October so most roses weren't in season, but there were still a handful of beautiful flowers. I can only imagine how amazing this place would look in the spring. I'd highly recommend swinging by here for some lovely rose viewing. They also have an amphitheater where they seem to hold event.
It must be one of the best rose gardens in the world. Roses grow so happily here! I was amazed at the thousands of lush blossoms, in different colors and shapes. Some roses I never saw in the past, only in oil paintings from 18-19 centuries. Many roses smelled so good! The fragrance was sweet and strong, but gentle than perfumes. Best of all, it is free to visitors. I would recommend it to any visitors to Portland.
