Set on a hilly 5.5 acres among tall cedars, Douglas firs, and hemlocks, the Portland Japanese Garden is not to be missed. Enjoy the views of downtown and Mt. Hood from the Pavilion’s lookout, then meander the trails through five garden areas. In the Natural Garden, 12 varieties of Japanese maples show their true colors in fall. Scattered throughout the grounds are crimson burning bushes and yellow, orange, and red deciduous azaleas. Please note that the gardens will be closed until April 1, 2016, and that construction will continue for almost another year after that.
