“Rose City”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2013

Most beautiful during the spring and summer but even on my last trip in October there were still roses in bloom. Every type and scent of rose you could think of. You can get ideas of what you want to plant in your own yard. There is a free tour by very knowledgeable tour guides that can answer all your rose related questions. There is an area where the kids can run and play, take in a summer concert or have a picnic.

“Roses with a view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

Spend a few hours in the summer among a wonder bunch of roses, roses, roses! One of the best views of the city and Mt. Hood, with, (guess what?) roses in the foreground.

“Gem of the Rose City”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

Portland is the Rose City because of this beautiful, well maintained rose garden. It is across the road from the Japanese Garden.
