    Free admission. Very close to Portland Japanese Garden, recommend doing both of them.

    The roses are beautiful year-round. The grounds are meticulously maintained and rose bushes labeled. You can park on the street and walk in but drop off the children with a chaperone before you park.

    Beautiful flowers and no charge to get in! Would be a great place to have a romantic picnic or to sit on a bench and read a good book. And I love the Shakespeare garden!

    Follow the bees for the best smelling roses. Then stop to smell them (but only after the bee leaves)
