We went to the Portland Japanese Garden with our Woodhaven friends, Ken & Betty on August 21, 2012. We took the tram up the steep hill to the entrance. What a beautiful place! A garden full of waterfalls, ponds, beautiful trees and quiet places to sit and reflect. The koi pond with the waterfall was one of my favorites. Watch the above video.
We also strolled around the International Rose Test Garden located across the street from the Japanese Garden. The purpose of the garden is to serve as a testing ground for new rose varieties. We took lots of pictures and enjoyed seeing a wide variety of beautiful roses from around the world!
