This city park offers an excellent spring walk. Take your mother and enjoy the rush of blooming rhododendrons.
Something of a hidden gem in Portland, the garden adjoins the (public) Eastmoreland Golf Course. Enjoyable year-round, the garden peaks with the rhodies' bloom, in late April. There is a produce stand just north of the garden where you can buy food for the ducks and geese. The garden has free admission Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
Stopped here to have some quiet time after a great lunch at CARTLANDIA food truck pod. It so quiet and relaxing - very few people because the rhododendrons were past their blooming time. I was amazed how beautiful this place was. Even without the rhododendrons, there were lots of great spots for taking pictures. We were told that it is... More
This 9.5 acre park is pretty even when the rhodies are not blooming. Fall can be spectacular with deciduous leaves. Kids will enjoy the geese and ducks. Adult admission is currently free on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and evenings after 6 pm, with a fee for other hours.
There aren't many areas in the middle of Portland that can offer such amazing views with such a peaceful setting in the middle of a bustling city. If you need a little time away from the hustle and bustle, these gardens are it.

Little stream runs through, ducks swimming around, and pretty good signage on many of the trees and shrubbery, so those of us not too good on plants can know... More

This garden must be breathtaking in the spring with hundreds and hundreds of rhododendron trees and azaleas. However, my visit was at the very end of August. The park is lovely and calming. I was enchanted by the wooden bridges over the pond and meandering pathways. Actually, my daughter was married on their meadow...an absolutely lovely spot!
Visited this gem near Reed College in SE Portland when in full bloom. I've been there many times, but to see it in full bloom is an amazing experience. It was also a beautiful clear day which really added to the overall experience.
