Portland Japanese Garden

On Friday July 25th, there is an optional excursion to the Portland Japanese Garden. The 5.5 acre Japanese Garden is composed of five distinct garden styles. When we enter a Japanese garden, the desired effect is to realize a sense of peace, harmony, and tranquility and to experience the feeling of being a part of nature. Attendees will be split into two groups and treated to a guided tour by an expert of the beautiful gardens who will talk about the history and aesthetics of Japanese gardens.
The Portland Japanese Garden is located fifteen minutes away from the Portland State campus and is located next to both the International Rose Test Garden, the Washington Park Amphitheater and multiple walking trails. The excursion costs $20.00 per person.
