Portland >The Japanese Garden
Lovely, peaceful spot in the heart of the rambling Arboretum, not far from the zoo. Ahh, the water features and the Zen Garden and the manicured shrubs and trees and bushes. A must visit when the cherry blossoms are in full flower. Go!
Get your zen on at this serenely gorgeous hillside retreat, where you can wander the five different garden styles until the Wagyu come home or the garden closes, whichever comes first. In the fall, the technicolor Japanese maples will render you breathless. April through October, you can take a free guided tour, offered three times daily.
Relaxing must see for all ages. This was a very relaxing experience.This is something to see not only for tourists and locals. There is a wonderful view of Portland too. Sand gardens,waterfalls,and beautiful taste of what kind of nature Portland does have to offer.
Five Japanese gardens offer pastoral tranquility at its best..
Situated on the former location of the Washington Park Zoo, the five gardens presented here collectively make one of the most tranquil places in Portland. Professor P. Takuma Tono of Tokyo, an internationally renowned authority on Japanese landscaping, was the master designer. The gardens--Flat Garden, Strolling Pond Garden, Tea Garden, Natural Garden, and Sand and Stone Garden, plus the authentic Japanese Pavilion--were developed with private donations and memberships from the Japanese Garden Society of Oregon.
Go see this Garden. If you enjoyed the Chinese Garden Downtown you will love the Japanes Garden near the zoo. It is a bit of a trek(Take the max to the zoo then wait for a shuttle) but worth it. The Japanese garden is spectacular with it's multiple gardens, moss covered grounds and natural Portland trees. You can even see the view of the city below. Gorgeous!
Serine. One of the best palces to spend a couple of hours. We take all of our visitors there.
Beautiful and Romantic. Walk in the garden anytime of the year and you'll feel alive again.
