Welcome to the City of Roses

Portland is the City of Roses so it comes as no surprise that we have an impressive rose garden located in the heart of the city! Portland’s International Rose Test Garden is the oldest official continuously operated public rose test garden in the United States. Unofficially known as the Portland Rose Garden, the space features more than 10,000 roses. Hundreds of thousands of visitors from around the world enjoy it sights and scents annually. The garden also offers spectacular views of downtown and Mount Hood. The garden is open daily and admission is free. While great city views are offered year-round, the best rose-viewing months are May through September.
