Construction will begin in early March 2017. The area around the main garden promenade leading from the ramp near the Rose Garden Store through the heart of the garden past the Royal Rosarian Garden and to the Amphitheater will be closed or largely closed to the public during construction. Read more about this project in the Frequently Asked Questions. Project map coming soon!
All are welcome to celebrate this milestone with us at a Groundbreaking Celebration on Friday, February 24, 2017 at 1:00pm at the Rose Garden Store, 400 SW Kingston Avenue. Join Parks Commissioner Amanda Fritz, Parks Director Mike Abbaté, and Kimberly Bown, President of the Friends of Washington Park International Test Rose Garden as construction begins to improve ADA accessibility in the Rose Garden's Centennial year.
With funding from the Parks Replacement Bond, this project will remove ADA accessibility barriers from the main promenade within the Rose Garden and improve the connection to the parking lot, so that all Portland residents and visitors can equally enjoy this space for the next 100 years. The Washington Park International Rose Test Garden will celebrate its Centennial anniversary in 2017.
