Proclaimed the most authentic Japanese garden outside of Japan, the Portland Japanese Garden is a 5.5-acre haven of tranquil beauty nestled in the scenic west hills of Portland, Oregon. What better place to take a walk especially with the autumn foliage just kicking in. It should be beautiful!
The walk will start out guided by volunteers from Elders in Action who are also guides at the Garden. The walk will occur rain or shine (of course, this is Oregon after all). For more details click here
