International Rose Test Garden information
These gardens practically gave Portland its 'Rose City' nickname. They sprawl across 4.5 acres of manicured lawns, fountains and flowerbeds, and on a clear day you can catch peeks of downtown and Mt Hood. Over 500 rose varieties grow in the permanent gardens, including many old and rare specimens. From April through September the scent and colors are intoxicating.
From June to late September, volunteers lead tours of the garden, starting from the Rose Garden Store at 11:30am Tuesday and 1pm Saturday and Sunday.
