This Little Known Natural Oasis Is Hiding In Oregon… And You’re Going To Love It

Tucked away in SE Portland is the beautiful Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden. This serene, peaceful garden is a perfect place to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city, and to spend some time relaxing and taking in the beauty of nature.

Stroll along walkways and wooden bridges through a lush, vibrant garden full of colorful flowers, reflective ponds, and draping trees. You can feed the ducks and geese, or simply sit on a bench and enjoy the peace and quiet of nature.
