Have passed this park many times but not on a regular basis until more recently. Finally saw the roses in bloom and it made me think of a smaller version of the rose garden in Washington Park. A beautiful spot!

The Rose Garden is amazingly beautiful. It is a place for great photos Weddings take place there as do other celebrations. The park has a small spray park for younger kids and a playground.

This is a beautiful little park but, unfortunately, surrounded by one of the worst neighborhoods in Portland. Definitely a "daylight" attraction...
