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.

You almost won't believe you are in the city, very pretty, often popular but I have never been too crowded, worth a stop for some air if you are in the neighborhood.

This is an amazing experience. You get to witness history with nature that you can walk through that have been there for 200 years! This is a great place to bring your family to experience nature at its finest. Admission if free but the memories are priceless. Giant Redwoods are my favorite part to visit. I hope you start your journey there soon!
A large Park in the middle of the city. Meandering paths take you through the park for a walk, a jog, a stroll. With many benches and picnic areas to rest in enjoy the pleasant large trees and ponds as well as what has become known as Portlandia.
