    This Memorial was on my list of places to see in Washington Park.
    located just south of the international Rose Garden this striking memorial has details you wont really understand until you are standing within the memorial. What initially looks like trash or something left on the ground or on a bench, turns out to be what is most impactful about this memorial. Bronze girls dolls, a broken violin, a tattered up set of paper, a suitcase, a menorah all ruminants of what the Nazis stole from the Jews and anyone else they deemed unworthy. All these items strewn about without a care for these innocent peoples belongings as they are shuttled into trains to be put to death. The cobblestone entry to the memorial very much like the cobblestones in the ghettos themselves. The memorial itself explaining in as much detail as you can in the space provided the horrors the Nazis and the words of the survivors that chill you to your core. This is a powerful Monument and one that ensures we never forget the atrocities that people are capable of just because you are different. I was surprised to see how many survivors moved to Oregon after the war with all the names and families etched into this beautiful memorial. This is a must see when you are in Oregon!

    Several cute animal sculptures.some in rock water containers. The parking on the road is an issue on the weekend we visited. Do not drive in the train or bus lanes!

    Very beautifully done and makes you stop and reflect on many things. I felt a bit emotional especially when you reach the end of the annual monuments with the random factoids and it says that these were the events both great and small that 751 Oregon men were not to see again.

    I have been searching on things to do in Portland and this plaza made it on my list. I like to walk along the waterfront. Just make sure you are not walking by yourself when it gets dark.

    Located above the entrance of the Portland Building is this massive copper repousse - in fact, it’s the world’s second largest (#1 is the Statue of Liberty)! It is best viewed from across the street - even better if you can travel up several floors inside the building across the street. Be sure to read the information plaque and accompanying poem.

    Super cute little park with this statue dedicated to Beverly Cleary. As an elementary school teacher, I had to go and found the trip well worth it. There is also a Beverly Cleary school down the block which is worth walking by. They have a beautiful mosaic book on the building that is really pretty.

    My family and I were touring and just had to stop and snap a picture! So much fun to pose beside those BIG boots.
