Oregon, Portland Guide (B): Portland Oregon City of Roses

A large portion of our visit was spent in Washington Park, which covers over 400 acres, and includes the Portland Zoo, The International Rose Test Garden, Japanese Gardens, multiple museums, playgrounds and picnic areas. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
