Things to do in PORTLAND with kids

Portland - the city referred to as a “family paradise”. In summer the kids will love the leafy outdoors, and in winter, it’s puddle-ahoy to splash in.

Summertime is calling! How about enjoying the 400 acres of Washington Park, or getting out on that water to enjoy some Jetboat Excursions? There are beautiful gardens like the Portland Japanese Garden which just come to life in summer, and theme parks like the Oaks Amusement Park which put the thrills and spills into any family day out.

Winter rolling in? Never fear, Playdate PDX is here! A huge indoor space perfect for kids to use up all that extra energy of theirs (and we know they have it!), or perhaps they would rather enjoy the Portland Art Museum with it’s 42,000 objects to learn from. Portland Childrens Museum is a great way for kids to get out of the rain and spend the day creating and using their imagination, and for those little kids there are fun indoor play centers’ like Pump It Up and Garden Home Indoor Play Park.

Don’t want to go outside because it’s raining? No excuses any more! Portland has something for everyone, no matter what the weather.
