Leach Botanical Gardens is an outdoor wonderland waiting for you. With lush greenery surrounding your every move, it’s no wonder it’s a such a gem in the community.

Here’s a little background about the site.

“Today the Garden welcomes you. Yearly it provides a beautiful and intimate setting for scores of events. The East Terrace, surrounded by lush garden displays, is a perfect counterpoint to the historic Manor House with its high beamed great room. The Manor House features hardwood floors, knotty pine paneling, natural light from the spacious windows and views of the surrounding trees and foliage. The dining room, including displays of artifacts belonging to John and Lilla and provides a perfect space for food and beverage service. No other place in the Metro area is quite like Portland’s Secret Garden.”

It may be Portland’s Secret Garden (that was my favorite book growing up), the ones who know about it will reserve it quickly. So plan ahead and contact them today for a visit.
