Adopt-A-Rose Bed

Last Update - November 16, 2018


Due to staff transition, the Adopt-A-Rose Bed Program at the International Rose Test Garden is temporarily on hiatus.

We acknowledge how meaningful this program is and apologize for any disappointment this may cause. Please check back in July 2019.

Thank you.

About Friends of Peninsula Park Rose Garden

Friends of Peninsula Park Rose Garden, founded in 2012, is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization. Our mission is to preserve, protect and enhance Peninsula Park Rose Garden as a heritage resource for all generations. Members of the Friends group volunteer their time and energy to enhance and maintain the beauty of this historic garden for the benefit of the Piedmont neighborhood, the Portland community at large, and the many visitors who enjoy strolling through the garden, sitting by its fountain, or using the garden as a backdrop for weddings and other important personal celebrations.

Because the Friends is an entirely volunteer-run organization all funds raised by the group go directly to the care of the Garden and to support the large volunteer force essential to keep the roses in peak condition. Here are just a few of the many projects generous donors to our fundraising campaigns have made possible:

  • Interpretive welcome sign at Garden entrance, highlighting the Garden’s history
  • Community rose care classes, lectures, and Garden tours, including a special children’s tour
  • New, easy-to-read rose identification markers
  • Critical masonry repairs to the Garden’s century-old masonry in partnership with Portland Parks
  • Sustainable garden with all-season interest on North Ainsworth Street
