Forest Park information
Not many cities have 5100 acres of temperature rainforest within their limits, but then not many cities are like Portland. Abutting the more manicured Washington Park to the west (to which it is linked by various trails) is the far wilder Forest Park, whose dense foliage harbors plants, animals and an avid hiking fraternity. The Portland Audubon Society maintains a bookstore, wildlife rehabilitation center and 4 miles of trails within its Forest Park sanctuary.
The main sight in the park is the Pittock Mansion , a grand mansion built in 1914 by Henry Pittock, who revitalized the Portland-based Oregonian newspaper. It's worth visiting the (free) grounds just to check out the spectacular views – bring a picnic.
