Laurelhurst Park Reviews
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 »
포틀랜드는 굉장히 도시적이라는 느낌이 많이 들었는데 잠시나마 그런 생각을 잊게 해준 공원이었습니다. 조깅하기에도 굉장히 좋을만큼 길도 좋았습니다. 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!
