Susie Knows Laurelhurst Park

Cuteness Warning! I took a stroll through Laurelhurst Park a few days ago and experienced the most magical moment. As I was watching a group of ducklings splash around on Firwood Lake, a gaggle of goslings swam by, following their mother and father. Then they hopped onto the bank and pecked around for food and I had front row seats!

It was TOO cute. Laurelhurst Park is really one of my favorite places in the city. The tree-shaded paths are great for sunny or rainy days and it’s hard to find a more majestic spot for a picnic.

I look forward to the days when concerts and Shakespeare in the park return. In the meantime, I’m loving the quiet time in nature watching the little animal babies splash around!

FUN FACT! “In February 2001, Laurelhurst was the first city park ever to be listed on the National Register of Historic Places.” (-Wikipedia)


In the near future we’re listing a home in Kerns (the neighborhood north of the park across Burnside). Prime location 3 blocks from the 28th Ave. restaurant row. Full details on a future blog!


Laurelhurst Park is located at SE Cesar E Chavez Blvd & Stark St, Portland, OR 97214
