One of the best urban hiking areas in the USA.
It includes a zoo, forestry museum, arboretum, children’s museum, rose garden, Japanese garden, amphitheatre, memorials, archery range, tennis courts, soccer field, picnic areas, playgrounds, public art and many acres of wild forest with miles of trails.
I walked from my hostel and then did about 10km of run / walk between some of the attractions.
The trails are excellent. No bikes allowed.
Early April blossoms are the highlight. There were plenty of cameras out.
The Oregon Holocaust Memorial was dedicated in 2004.
It’s very well maintained. Public picnic spaces superb.
Don’t miss this park if you get to Portland.
