4.6
#12 of 62 in Parks in Portland
Laurelhurst Park is a city park in the neighborhood of Laurelhurst in Portland, Oregon. The 26.81acre park was acquired in 1909 from the estate of former Portland mayor William S. Ladd. The City of Portland purchased the land in 1911, and the following year park superintendent Emanuel Mische designed the park in accordance with the Olmsted Plan.
In 1919, the Pacific Coast Parks Association named Laurelhurst Park the "most beautiful park" on the West Coast, and in February 2001 it was the first city park ever to be listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The park costs the city approximately $274,000 per year to maintain.

  • With its little hidden off beaten tracks and ponds and ducks and autumn trees -- I'd never felt happier. It's also a 'green' friendly park, which makes the sunset across the lake that much more memora...  more »
  • Portland was a very cosmopolitan feeling, and it was a park that made me forget about it. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

  • It was a lovely day in Portland for a bike ride to the waterfront! In addition, the cherry blossoms were in bloom. The waterfront area is a nice location to head to for a walk/jog/bike ride or to just sit. After a short bike ride to the waterfront, I was in cherry blossom heaven! The trees were in full bloom and it made for excellent photo ops. Awesome way to spend my afternoon and I'm happy I was able to finally see then in bloom !
  • Year round this is a GREAT city park. Easy access. Lots of parking. The perimeter (paved) trail is just over a mile and gives you lots of opportunity to walk, jog, skip...whatever. Nearly everyone you pass will give you a nod hello. Safe. Beautiful. Calming. Summertime offers events. Spring and Fall provides great photo opportunities. Winter...a nice place to get outside and stay relatively dry. Love this park. Oh yes.... and an off-leash dog area too!
