About these ratings

Not until you visit these sprawling gardens will you fully understand the reasoning behind Portland's nickname, the City of Roses. Established in 1917 by the American Rose Society, these gardens are used as a trial space for approximately 400 new types of hybrid roses. Each garden houses a particular type of rose: you'll find your favorites in the Gold Medal Garden, while the Shakespeare Garden features flowers mentioned in the Bard's plays. You should particularly make time for the miniature rose garden.

The International Rose Test Garden sits to the west of Downtown Portland in Washington Park and is open every day, although hours vary depending on the season. Admission is free, although donations are appreciated. For more information, check out the garden's website.
