This 26.81 acre City Park has a basketball court, a soccer field, a tennis court, a volleyball coach, playgrounds for children, a horseshoe pit, lots of picnic sites, and pond known as Firwood Lake. It is an egregiously pretty place in any season, but especially in spring and in autumn. On most days it is definitely more popular with the local standards with tourists, unless you're visiting during the right weather. On the best of days it is a magical, Secret looking place and utterly tranquil. You mostly have to keep your dogs on a leash except for the area specifically dedicated to taking leashes off. Remember you're not supposed to feed to the ducks in the lake. This is the first city park to be listed on the national register of historic places.

Laurelhurst Park, Portland Reviews - Write a Review
I've been going here since I was little and I absolutely love sharing it with my son and family. It has something for everyone! Play structure, basketball court, tennis court, soccer field, wall ball court, and a dance studio on one side (the loud, active side). And the "quiet side" has winding paved pathways, a duck pond, wide open spaces to spreading out a blanket/play Frisbee/do yoga/hula hoop/draw/paint/or just be, a dog park area, picnic tables EVERYWHERE for reunions/birthday's/or just to sit. It really is a beautiful park in a beautiful neighborhood and a great place to take visitors or spend time with friends and family. I give it a 10/10
Laurelhurst Park is separated into two sections with a street between. One side has a children's play park, basketball courts, tennis courts, a wading pool that sometimes holds water, and a community center that is swirling with great activities. The other side of the street is peaceful and quiet and filled with nature. Trails for walking, a dog run area, a very large pond with ducks. Benches for people watching or reading. A gathering place for large functions. Laurelhurst Park has something for everyone!
Great large open space to do just about anything no matter what age or mammal you are. Plenty of areas for kids to play on swings and playgrounds, tennis or running, relaxing by the pond, or watching pups run around in the open spaces.
Really nice local park. Playground is good but could use a bit more to do. Down side is the homeless which usually hang out outside the park but most of them are generally nice with a few exceptions. Rest rooms are ok and right next to playground which is nice. Lots. Of ducks but they don't want you to feed them as they have plenty to eat in the lake.
Has several pokestops and a gym on a convenient loop around the lake. Not the most efficient loop though, one whole side of the lake has no stops. Usually an interesting nest too.
