International Rose Test Gardens

Has anyone else been? It's spectacular. So many variations of roses you can't count them all. Go in June for the best experience.

Yes, oh yes. The Rose Gardens will play a large part in my coming Alzheimers. Until I was married virtually every date included Washington Park and the Rose Gardens. I woke up there several times....

If you missed the train ride to the zoo, or the formal Japanese Garden that is just uphill from the tennis courts, then you have seen less than half and have every reason to go back.

For those who have not been, the Rose Gardens is in Washington Park and overlooks downtown Portland. It also has an outdoor theater for concerts and plays during the summer.

We went in late June and it was indeed spectacular, though it was after the peak. We're going again next year but earlier.

I ride my bike through there every day on my commute home, and used to run up and through them from downtown. They are pretty spectacular.

That's a bummer. The garden is normally gorgeous. I've never been disappointed.
