Portland’s Shakespeare Garden
On our trip to Portland this month, we visited the International Rose Test Garden, the oldest public garden of its kind in the U.S. Inside, I was surprised (and delighted) to find a Shakespeare Garden.
It was originally intended to include only herbs, trees and flowers mentioned in William Shakespeare’s plays. This special part of the garden has been there since 1945, when it was moved from Crystal Springs Lake in southeast Portland.
The International Rose Test Garden is open 7:30 a.m.-9 p.m. daily. Admission is free.
