Washington Park, Oregon

These snaps are of Washington Park, Oregon taken in the spring of 2008. Park is a classic urban park, sprawling over about 140 acres. The park encompasses Japanese Gardens, Oregon Zoo, World Forestry Center Discovery Museum, Portland Children's Museum, International Rose Test Gardens, and Hoyt Arboretum which offers miles of hiking trails. It also contains memorials for the Korean and Vietnam Wars, a Holocaust memorial and a Lewis and Clark memorial. Beautiful view of Portland downtown and Mount Hood.
