The Rose City

Portland is called the Rose City. Mainly because it has a perfect climate to grow beautiful roses!

We went up this large hill where Washington Park is and the famous International Rose Test Gardens!
This is the oldest continuing test gardens in the U.S.! And one of only five in the world!

Here you'll see row after row of gorgeous roses! Hundreds of them. And still blooming at the end of October! But the climate is much more temperate than in the Midwest!

are way above
the city with
