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.
