PROJECT UPDATE - July 2017
Construction for the Parks Replacement Bond-funded ADA accessibility improvements is substantially completed at the Rose Garden. Please note that temporary handrails have been installed, and construction workers will return to install permanent handrails in the next few weeks.
If you visit the Garden, please watch out for any additional construction work, such as the handrail installation. For your safety, please stay out of any areas closed off.
Please join us at a ribbon-cutting celebration with Parks Commissioner Amanda Fritz on Saturday, August 26 at 6pm in the Rosarian Garden!
ACCESS TO WASHINGTON PARK: Please review the Water Bureau's construction map for accessing Washington Park. Many routes are closed due to reservoir construction work.

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.
