Located on the eastern edge of the North Clackamas Central Park, this little rose garden features a pavillion that is sometimes rented for weddings or other special events.
There are quite a number of roses here that bloom fairly late in the year, and while the peak of the season is certainly in June or so some of the roses will still even be in bloom as late as September, and a few continue into October.
Benches are scattered through the garden, and many of them are memorials in their own right. Some of the bricks are also memorial or message bricks of some sort or another.
The garden is named in honor of a former director of the Milwaukie Center, which is located nearby, on the north side of the road and slightly west of the Rose Garden.
Bus route 152 serves the park and garden, but not on a regular basis - only four trips per day stop here on a regular weekday, and there is no service on Saturdays or Sundays.

There really isn't much to Altamont Park, except that it has some good views of Portland and the surrounding area, for a location near Interstate 205. If you happen to be on Interstate 205 headed somewhere else, I recommed a brief stop here to take a look at the scenery. Maybe have a picnic snack while you are here?
This is particularly the case if the sky looks like it will be a spectacular cloud sunset, as it was in May 2005 when I took these photos.
Although the appartment complex below blocks the view enough so that you can't see much of downtown Portland, it is possible to see parts of Portland. The best view is from the top of the playground structure.
This little park is designed for the neighborhood, and there are no rest rooms here. The nearest public rest rooms are in the Clackamas Town Center shopping mall.

Mt. Talbert Park is located near Interstate 205. Mt. Talbert is a preserved woodland that was set aside in the mid-1990s, and started to develop an official trail network in the early 2000s. As time has gone on, a new parking area is under development (construction of the official parking area is shown as of October 13, 2007).
There are new signs going up at all of the trail junctions. New, large signs help turn this forest area into an educational experience as well.
Unfortunately, the summit of Mt. Talbert is also dense forest, and therefore it is not possible to see much of anything, even though the mound itself can be seen from all over the Portland area.
At the new parking area a creative new statue greets those who enter the trail system.
The official opening of the park was October 6, 2007.
Bus route 156 serves the official park entrance.
Those traveling on I-205 may wish to take a break here, as it provides a nice but short walk in nature to prove your legs still work.

Forget the Llyod center or mall 205 in Portland. That's the mall you wanna go and it's just a few miles away from Portland. You'll find almost everything you want here. It's a modern building and the facilites are very clean and net. The next mall which can be compared to it is probalby found in Seattle....
What to buy: many things :)
What to pay: $$$.$$
