#13 of 62 in Parks in Portland
Laurelhurst Park is a city park in the neighborhood of Laurelhurst in Portland, Oregon. The 26.81-acre (10.85 ha) 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.

  • Amazing place for the whole family to enjoy. By far a great tourist spot and the nature walks are endless! This park offers a lot to do & also a whole lot of beautiful nature scenery around you. Would recommend for anyone looking to find somewhere new to explore or a great place to relax! :)
