Know Before You Go

During weekdays from June 10th – July 3rd, Portland Parks and Recreation is conducting emergency sewer repair construction, which may cause some delays and detours. Traffic may be congested along SW Kingston Ave. (in front of Portland Japanese Garden), so we recommend building in extra arrival time prior to your visit. More information and a map can be found on the Getting Here & Parking page.
